Education System Needs ‘Head-to-Toe Reform’

Education System Needs ‘Head-to-Toe Reform’

KABUL - Acting Education Minister Dr. Mohammad Ibrahim Shinwari has called for “head-to-toe reform” of the education system, saying the current composition and structure of the ministry could not cope with modern day needs.
Shinwari was addressing a meeting of the Ministry of Education (MoE) leadership delegation in Kabul on Friday, according to MoE spokesman Kabir Haqmal.
The meeting was also attended by the Asia Foundation representatives, who have been working to reform the MoE composition.
Haqmal quoted Minister Shinwari as saying the ministry’s current structure and distribution of responsibilities could not meet present day education needs.
He insisted on reforms from the minster to teachers and devolution of responsibilities in order all affairs were not performed from a single table.
He said every education official should realize their responsibility and no problem should be allowed to expand and create further problems.

Other members of the leadership delegation also insisted on reforms first and said identification and distribution of responsibilities and a check and balance system could help address existing problems. (Pajhwok)
