Most schools in Balochistan are in shambles. Whatever schools and colleges are there are being destroyed in the absence of teachers. Due to this situation, more than 50,000 students are out of school. Due to high fees, Most of people in Balochistan don’t have enough money to seek admission in private schools, and in some areas, there are no schools at all.
This help from China can help Balochistan only if the teachers and government are on the same page to promote education in the province.
