PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Educationinfo-icon department officials in central Lgoar province on Thursday urged the Education Ministry to resolve teachers’ shortage issue in the province.

Mohammad Shapour Arab, the provincial Education Department spokesman, urged the authorities concerned to provide education facilities and environmentinfo-icon to students in the province.

He said they had not been ot able to offer quality education to students due to the shortage of professional teachers and lack of text books in the province.

He said, “Currently we require 300 professional teachers, but the Ministry of Education is yet to address the issue.”

Logar has 305 educational centers, 40 percent of students lacking textbooks, he added.

He said, “We have shared the problem with the local administration and the MoE, but they said the issue will be addressed by hiring contractual teachers.”

Arab warned if the issue was not addressed this year, a number of schools and districts in Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, would be lacking teachers in future.

Nasrullah, a 9th grade at Shahi Kala high school in the provincial capital, told Pajhwok Afghan News that most of students were without textbooks last year.

He said, “Last year we received textbooks very late while teachers of some subjects were not available.”

A number of other students held similar views and urged the MoE to address their issue at the earliest possible.
