On the other hand, residents have complained against the low quality of education and the system in the province despite their cooperation to help boost the education sector.

Yousuf Hanif, a resident of the Ahmad Abad district, told Pajhwok still the education quality has been low  due to shortage of textbooks, laboratories and computers at many schools.

 Hanif said, “Paktia residents have assisted the education department at different times in many areas but the authorities concerned did not pay attention to the education department.’

Ismatullah Taskin, a student of grade 10th of Baghsha high school, told Pajhwok private schools’ education quality was better compare to the government schools as they were more equipped with facilities.
