63,000 schools lack computer education across the Punjab
Lahore: Around 63,000 schools out of a total of 64,000 schools across the Punjab still lack computer labs and instructors despite the Punjab government's claims to provide government schools with computer education, quarters concerned said on Monday.

Officials of the Punjab Education Department (PED-Schools) said that they were working hard to provide schools across the province with computer labs. They said 144 schools would be made 'excellent schools'.

Access: Yousuf Nadeem, Punjab Educators Association (PEA) information secretary, said the government should play its role in providing computer education to government schools. In 2008, he said, the government had constructed computer labs in about 700 schools across the province, adding that students of 63,000 schools still had no access to information technology. A female teacher said, "A class VI student at a government school knows nothing about computers and internet. I wonder how these students will compete with the private school students." Another schoolteacher, Masroor Ahmed, said the Punjab government should notify that computer would be taught as a compulsory subject at primary level. He said, "It is tragic that our children see computer in a college. A large number of schools have computer labs, but they lack instructors. Local residents should be offered jobs in schools."

A senior official of the PED-Schools expressed his concern about the promotion of computer education in the province. Under the Excellent Schools Programme, he said, 144 schools would be provided with computer labs, instructors and furniture in the fiscal year 2008-09. He said the Punjab government had allocated funds for this purpose and the project would be started soon. He said that the remaining schools would be provided computer labs and other facilities in accordance with the programme. PED-Schools Secretary Nadeem Ashraf was not available for comment.
