Education is not considered as important in today’s society. Schools suffer from lack proper infrastructure, clean drinking water facilities, lack of playing grounds etc. Most importantly, there is a dearth of good teachers. According to a report, 20 villages in Swat still do not have any educational facilities. Female students are discouraged from attaining higher education. There are very few teachers who are capable of teaching disciplines like Mathematics and Physics. Poverty is a great barrier for individuals in attaining education. I request the government to look into the matter and provide better educational opportunities for the people of the area.
