Education Situation in Pakistan
We know that lots of national funds are wasted in paying salaries to teachers of ghost schools in the country and it is a valuable step by considering these schools. But only the presence of good teachers can make this initiative work properly. The educational budget in Pakistan is very less as compared to other countries and it is required to be increased in order to ensure future of our children.
