President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in a gathering underlined the need for countrywide education, through a precise survey to determine the exact number of teachers, their ages and their qualifications.
 
In a meeting of High Human Resource Council (HHRC) held at the Presidential Palace, the president said that the solar year 1397 should be the year of campaign for the nationwide education.
 
Present at the meeting other speakers provided details about achievements and challenges of education in the country, with a civil society activist, sharing information about the school management, accelerated learning, society-level classes, distance and online education as well as an overall supervision of teachers and students.
 
The country’s second vice-president, ministers of higher education, public health, labor and social affairs and education, as well as other senior officials also spoke about cooperation of the civil society with the ministry of education.
 
The imperative of greater coordination in online programs, was also spotlighted in the meeting, where teacher’s capacity building and some other related issues, have also been called a need.
 
Speaking on expansion of cooperation with the ministry of education, the country’s president said that both the government and the civil society activists should have a single voice for resolving the problems, the education sector, particularly the ministry of education is facing.
 
“The upcoming solar year, 1397, should be the year of a public campaign for education in order to help the sector strengthened through utilization of all resources available,” said the country’s president adding that Afghanistan has a clear cooperation with the international community in the education field.
 
Indeed Afghanistan is stepping up towards developed education plan and the president’s insistence to launch a survey to ascertain the number of teachers and education levels, is a great desire of the education sector and generally, the Afghans to once see all the country’s young generation highly educated. And moreover, the civil society’s plan, for the education sector, as the president said, should be reviewed and effort should be done for their implementation.
 
The education curriculum should be seriously assessed and to see if it conforms to the requirements of current times and there is a need for firm determination to bring reforms and exploit the opportunities to improve education quality.
 
As the next solar year has been called the year of solemn campaign for countrywide education, so the people of Afghanistan, particularly the parents should make effort for encouragement of their children to be enrolled in schools and other education centers, a move would highly help reduce the rate of illiteracy on one hand and on the other, would present an educated generation to the Afghan war-weary society.
 
Under the current wise leadership, there is a wide loophole of hope to provide a quality education for the new and next generations, as the people of Afghanistan are now full aware of advantages from sending their children to schools and that how they can overcome all challenges through education.
