Despite challenges Khost education sector improving

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Efforts have been accelerated at improving the educationinfo-icon sector in southeastern Khost province, an official said on Monday.

The lack of school buildings, unavailability of professional teachers in far-flung areas and text books are main issues crippling Khost’s education sector.

According to official figures, currently 350 schools are open for girls and boys in Khost and among them 204 schools are without buildings where the students attend classes under the open skies.

However, on Monday 254 professional teachers who emerged successful in the general test were introduced as teachers to specific schools.

Khost Education Director Naseer Ahmad Roshan said the new professional teachers’ induction would positively impact the education sector in the province.

“Improvement of the education system is a long-term strategy and I am sure our efforts would prove effective in this regard.”

He added the education department was striving to introduce another 1,000 professional teachers by the end of this year to improve the quality of education.

Governor Hukam Khan Habib said low quality education was a nationwide problem but his provincial government was working hard to improve the education quality.

Referring to construction of a hostel for students of insecure areas and a high school building, Habibi said it were the provincial government’s efforts that bore fruits.

“Education is a top priority. There are some issues which are above the authority of local government, but it doesn’t mean the education sector is ignored,” said Habibi.

Ahmad Murtaza, a newly appointed teacher, said: “I will work hard and honestly.”
