  • It seems govt is again black mailed by mafia. Minister sb plz consider students safety 1st. Students are unable to take serious precautions.

    • What about the safety and serious precautions when students are playing in parks, attending weddings of huge gathering and chilling in shopping malls??????

  • I dont know what he was expecting, a positive reaction? with teachers who are unsympathetic and humiliate students for the smallest of things and degrade their mental health and confidence? of course students won’t get any motivation to actually learn, or study. the academic system isn’t fun, students only take a quick copy of notes because they are scared of failure and want to proceed to the next grade without their parent’s disappointment. I wish people would understand that getting motivation is more then “paro, ya tumara sab se zayada acha time hei life mei”

  • When u know education is a gateway of future and best one life …then why u closed education one year and this is not correct that take complete semester online and paper will be physical ….and now crona is end ….??

  • Yes, Now schools should be open.we have wasted our one year of education that is enough.All places are open then why only schools are closed.

  • This is the reason why pakistan is not developing. Why the students consider education as punishment. Nothing can do anything for you except educarion. You guys use to roam in parks, markets, family function with no worry but when it comes to schools colleges you all about to die. Please apny aap ko pehchany.

    • We consider it a punishment because our education system is designed to make it so. Teachers repeat things from textbooks, expect students to understand and then move on. The examination system is so brutal that despite virtually no real education this while year, students are still expected to take exams on topics they didn’t understand in the least. What else are we supposed to think exams are? Childhood is a once in a lifetime experience, but it is ruined by these greedy people who make our lives miserable.

  • Sir please don’t listen to that kind of stupid studentS who are just studying because their parents force them to do so. We are here waiting for months the re opening of universities. We can not afford online learning. Online Learning has been badly flopped. Please take it serious. Thank you so much!!

  • What kind of online system Govt; is talking about?! Most of the middle school teachers even don’t know how to turn a computer onn…. In village schools no computer, no IT system and you people implemented online learning, what a Hilarious joke with your teachers and students!… Believe me all the governance system is responsible for destroying the generation. Only teachers can feel the pain when they join the schools and see their students reduced to ZERO… because no one can afford tuitions, no one at homes is motivating them to study… It’s all about rural zones schools, where the strength of students is now reducing just because of unscheduled closures of schools.
    I’m SST teacher and I’ve witnessed the facts…

  • Allah ka wata mt kholo school hamary bcho pr reham kro bhara corona bht taizi se phel raha hai
    🥺🥺
