Lahore (Yasir Bukhar/Amir Suhail/Amir Ijaz) :There is need to bring functional education system to enhance literacy rate and to overcome the dropout in educational institutions in Punjab and there is also need to promote Technical, Vocational and Medical related Technical Education. These views expressed by Professor Dr. Mohammad Nizamuddin, Chairman Punjab Higher Education Commission, in a panel interview to The Frontier Post. He said that in “New Pakistan” in order to normalize education, academic emergency should be implemented on Union Council level and there is a need to create such a model which started with a safety point of view and then it should be implemented, and for this purpose, country’s Champions Institutions, collectively will have to play their part to make this model successful, just like in case of any major accident or disasters in the country, all institutions, including Military, Judiciary, Media other Government Institutions, and Civil Society Organization, come together to control the situations.
In response to a question, he said that, we need to upgrade Government Educational Institutions at every level. We need to illustrate the latest methods to educate the teachers. There is need to make “Residential Education Model”, which was exactly the same Model as Madrasa Model System of Muslims in Madina, where instead of lectures insisted on dialogs, and it was called “Bait ul Hikma”.
He further said that, 10 Universities of China are working on CPEC. According to a project, on CPEC route from Gowadar to Gilgit, Technical Educational Institutions will be created, where functional education will be given, and those who will be graduated from here will undertake their responsibilities in ongoing projects, in this regards, the cited Universities have started their work, but alas, there is no positive indications from our side. As long as the standards in industry are not set and qualified staff will not be available it is not possible to bring quality products.
