Rawalpindi, (Parliament Times) : In order to develop the country and bring Pakistan in the ranks of developed countries, the education system has to be modernized and private educational institutions have to be encouraged. The role of private educational institutions in educational development is important. This was stated by Naeem Ashraf, Chairman, Ains Foundation, while talking to media here. He said that unfortunately no attention was paid to the education sector in Pakistan. The government system at the school level is not so effective which is why majority of the urban population turn to private educational institutions where they get better quality education. But private entities have to constantly strive for survival. That private institutions are not sponsored at the government level. The results could be even better if the government encourages these institutions.
