HYDERABAD: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday stressed the need for imparting good training to teachers in public and private educational institutions so that they could provide quality and modern education to students.

He said the government`s top priority consisted of development of health and education sectors while the government was encouraging public-private partnership so that schools could be run in a better way.

He was speaking as chief guest at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Sargodhian Spirit Institute for Professional Development (SSIPD) Rashidabad, Tando Allahyar.

He said trained teachers could play an important role in improving the standard of education because they could make a nation strong.

The CM said that all children should be provided good education. The Sindh government was taking initiatives in the right direction to improve literacy rate and education, he said.

Teachers were respected a lot in the past, but this trend was disappearing gradually for want of coordination between teachers and students, he added.

He said the students of higher educational institutions also were being trapped and deluded by terrorists because of this trend nowadays.

Teachers would be inducted in the education department on merit and no recommendation was tolerable in this respect as no compromise on education could be made, he said and assured the SSIPD administration of his full cooperation in future.

Earlier, SSIPD director Tayyab Jan threw light on the aims and objectives of the institute.

Sargodhian Spirit Trust (SST) chairman Tasneem Noorani and SST Public School principal (retired) Air Commodore Nayyar Qayyum Khawaja also spoke and shared school performance report. Later on, Sindh CM laid the foundation stone.

Answering a question, he said a cricket match of ICC World XI team would be held in Karachi next year.
