Kabul (BNA) The cultural growth of the community and wide spreading of science and literacy and particularly invest on the future of children of the country are urgent priorities of the country. Therefore, the Afghan government tries by establishing a standard system of education and improving it properly shortens the path for achieving that noble aim.
BNA commentator writes: Hamid Karzai the president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in his last radio speech expressing happiness over quantity growth of education, emphasize over an effective and extensive education.
The president of the country stresses over the growth of education while the investment on education sector and standardizing the education system has been at working agenda of Afghan government during the last 11 years. Today one million and one hundred eligible children both boys and girls are attending schools in 14000 schools across the country and are taught by 190000 teachers. The figures are unprecedented in the history of education of the country.  Beside the state owned schools are open to children of the country, the opportunity for the activities of private sector have been also provided. Presently there are 500 private schools across the country where 100,000 students are under training.
What have been mentioned above could be considered as a great achievement in education system; but it is not enough, because the tragedies of the previous year badly affected the system of education and the culture of learning descended to its low level. The Afghan people were in consensus that the imposed war was the main reason for wide spreading illiteracy and closing the door of schools to the children of the country. During the medieval rule of Taliban the girls were deprived from going school. After the collapse of the barbaric regime, once again literacy and education obtained its place in the community. Today educating the children is a dream and aspiration of every family. Although the achievements of education sector are great but still there are serious problems to be overcome. The students and teachers are threatened; the schools are set on fire and the system of education still suffering from lack of professional teachers and lack of school buildings. These problems are especially acute in rural and remote areas. In urban areas, because of state run poorly equipped schools, a number of children are going to private schools. Unfortunately, a number of these schools either not standardizes or charge the students such high fees which most families cannot afford to pay them. Therefore, only the children of rich families are able to attend the private schools. The president of the country considering the situation, addressing the private schools and higher educational institutes says, “The people hope and ask you to prefer the moral value of your education activities to its commercial value. You should organize your academic activities according to the procedure and regulations of ministry of education, you have committed while you were founding the relevant school or academic institute, in order to obtain a legal income and to serve your compatriot properly.”  Meanwhile, the president considering the improvement of education system as an urgent need insisted on its qualification.
The current situation asks all of us to word without any political, ethnical and linguistic discriminations to further improve education and with the support and cooperation ministry of education and academic society rescue our community from destitute and misfortune.
