Education Minister Enrolls his Daughter in Govt School in Hyderabad
The minister of education Sindh, Sardar Shah encourages people to admit their children in government-run schools across the province.
Taking a historic move in the country, particularly in Sindh, Education Minister Sardar Shah has enrolled his eight-year-old daughter into the government-run school to encourage the people to do the same instead of preferring education in the private sector.
Speaking on the floor of Sindh Assembly a few days ago, the provincial education minister had announced to enroll his only daughter and two other kids from his family to the government school.
His aim is to encourage people to avail the facility run by the taxpayer’s money.
According to the reports, Sardar Shah has also enrolled his two nieces Uneza and Aliza in the same school.
On Friday, the Minister arrived at the Government Miran Bai School along with his daughter and two nieces and registered them before the principal of the institution.
The Minister filled the admission form for his eight-year-old daughter, Kaif-ul-Wara, and two nieces.
As soon as the minister reached the school, a large number of media persons rushed to the scene thinking that the minister was on a surprise visit.
However, all the people were shocked to see that the minister was there to enroll the family children in the school.
After the admission procedure, the minister also visited some portions of the school and congratulated the school authorities for maintaining cleanliness and all other basic facilities at the school.
While talking to the media, the Sindh’s Minister for education said:
“I have fulfilled my commitment which I made in the assembly that I would be the first person to enroll my children in government-run school to encourage the public to do the same.”
What else does he say:
“I will not issue any order forcing officers to enroll their children into the government schools. It’s everyone’s dedication and commitment with their kids and the Government schools,” he said.
He said that he will try his best to ensure the best teaching facilities at the government schools that would ultimately compel people.
“Everything is a matter of ownership. Today, I have taken a step to own my government schools. It is easy to criticize the system but it is quite hard to take initiative at your own, towards reforming it,” he said.
It is not a matter of imposition but of conscience and example for others to follow, Shah said.
“Whatever I did, it’s my personal duty and it is just the first step towards the restoration of the dilapidated system.”
”Now whosoever wants to question about the education system should first get his children into government schools. Only then he has the right to question, otherwise, it would merely be an attempt of political point scoring,” Shah said.
