PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Local educationinfo-icon officials say 100 schools in central Logar province would get new buildings during the new solar yearinfo-icon to resolve problems of students studying in the open.

Logar education department spokesman, Shapor Arab, told Pajhwok Afghan News that last year they shared their problems regarding shortages of professional teachers, school buildings and text books with the Ministry of Education.

He said the MoE promised to build 100 school buildings until the end of the current solar year in Logar.

 “Construction of these buildings would solve students’ problems to the most extent, we assure our people that the education sector would see huge positive changes this year,” he said.

Arab said evaluation and monitoring teams would also be tasked with improving the education process.

He added 35 schools were newly established and 14 secondary schools were promoted to high schools in Logar last solar year. He said 23,000 new children would be enrolled to schools this academic year in the province.

 “Education is an apolitical process, we want the warring sides to keep their battlefields far from schools,” he said.

Zubair Ahmad, a student at Haronkhel Secondary School in Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, said that their school had no building.

“There is no surrounding wall and classrooms, we don’t attend classes on rainy days because students do not feel ease during their lessons,” he said.

On the other hand, Abdul Wali Wakil, the Logar provincial council deputy head, told Pajhwok that the MoE’s plans for the new year were promising.

“Last year we had problems with regard to school buildings, teachers and books, but the education department has promised that these problems would be solved or reduced,” he said.

There are 305 educational centers in Logar where 135,000 students including 40,000 of them girls are getting education.
