No improvement in schools adopted by MPA’s/MNA’s in Punjab


LAHORE: The schools ‘adopted’ by politicians in Punjab under a scheme launched by former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif are suffering from poor conditions with hardly any school making serious progress over the years, a local media outlet reported on Monday.

The ‘Parho Punjab Barho Punjab’ scheme saw politicians adopting a school in their constituencies in order to improve the performance of government schools. 162 schools were adopted across the province with Lahore having the highest number of adopted schools at 54. However, in Lahore, problems such as single classrooms, high dropout rate and staff shortage continue to plague the schools adopted under the scheme.
