Good teachers but cramped classrooms

an Alif Ailaan Contributor

Irshad Ahmed is a respected community head (Numberdaar) of Village 123 DRB Yazman, Bahawalpur. He looks after the Government Primary School 123 DRB. “Our community has built two rooms for the school out of their own pockets. People make barely enough meet their day to day expenses and have no savings. Yet each household contributed voluntarily to build the school rooms,” Irshad Ahmed says.

“Our school is built on a two acre plot of land. We can’t afford a boundary wall. There are more than 150 students enrolled here but we have only two rooms.”

Irshad Ahmed and other members of the community are sending their children to this school. “The teachers in this government schools are highly educated and are selected on merit. I send my child to this school because I believe government schools are better than private schools. If the teachers are provided with the proper training and teaching aids, they will create a generation of students which can have a positive impact on society.”
