Letter: Students Need Quality Education Not Laptops

The Chief Minister (CM) of Balochistan Abdul Quddus Bizenjo recently visited Kech District. Alongside meeting with many people, He also met with the students of the University Of Turbat and provided them laptops. Thus, this was a very great measure taken by the CM.
I also want to remind the CM that Balochistan’s half-population of children is deprived of education. It would be much better that the money invested in those laptops could be invested in the education of students. Balochistan doesn’t want laptops, it wants quality education.
It is said that many schools around Balochistan lack boundary walls, sanitation, toilets, clean drinking water, and proper classrooms and so on.
To my recent visit in a primary school in a village, I saw the primary school transferred into an animal farm. It is a tragic that those teachers who qualified the National Testing Service (NTS) Test now do not attend the classes, rather they give 3 or 4 thousands to common people to attend the classes in rent. Thus, what kind of a future awaits those kids studying in those classrooms?
This is a very humble request to the CM of Balochistan that if he wants to do something for Balochistan in these four remaining months, then the money invested in laptops should be used for developing the education of poor Baloch people.
