On Monday, PM Khan has introduced the Teleschool, which is an educational television channel, for broadcasting the academic content for the students who are stuck at their homes amid the coronavirus associated lockdown.
He said while lauding the efforts put in by the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training and the Information Ministry regarding the initiative, that the channel will assist in transmitting the education to children all across the nation during the lockdown impositions.
It is very unfortunate that no attention was paid to improving the education quality in the country in the back days. The Prime Minister of Pakistan also said that the government is giving special attention to the education standards.
