* Universities are the main secret ingredient of a successful country. No country has developed without education
JANUARY 24, 2019
American lawyer and politician Kirsten Gillibrand puts it so beautifully, “If we expect our children to thrive at our colleges and universities, and succeed in our economy once they graduate, first we must make quality and affordable early childhood education accessible to all.” The education sector of Balochistan seems very bush-league as the largest province of Pakistan has only seven universities, among these most of them do not even have enough professors and other necessary facilities for the students to acquire gilt-edged education.
Universities play an integral role for the betterment of a country and assist students to study about their cultural norms and recognise their own identity and other nations too.
Universities are the main secret ingredient of a successful country. No country has developed without education and universities are the only tools which are used to promote great quality of education.
Withal, Balochistan is the richest province of Pakistan but still it has very less universities and other educational facilities. The education system of Balochistan does not showing an affirmative picture for it lacks standout opportunities and every school is deprived of the fundamental facilities needed for development. Over and above, if we take a look at other provinces of Pakistan, we can find more than hundreds of universities. This is testament of the fact that Balochistan is being ignored by the government purposefully.

Principally, universities are the places that create educational culture and educated societies.
In Balochistan, mostly the youth is deprived of ground-laying rights for the province lacks libraries, course books, lecturers, building walls and many more. Even though, youngsters are the backbones of our society, but still they are being ignored by the government and politicians as they both are not helping them aquire their fundamental needs.
Late American politician Jim Jeffords said, “We have a responsibility to ensure that every individual has opportunity to receive high-quality education, from pre-kindergarten to elementary and secondary, to special education to technical and higher education and beyond.” But it is different in Balochistan.
The Baloch government should focus its attention towards the education system in order to provide basic opportunities to the universities and students so they gain knowledge without facing any trouble. What the province really needs is more universities.
