RAWALPINDI – Lack of basic facilities in different schools in Rawalpindi division is proof of the provincial government’s negligence in providing quality education.

Majority of schools have no roofs forcing the students to study in open atmosphere in all four seasons. There are a lot of other public schools that lack infrastructure. Many schools have no furniture in classrooms, and lack teaching staff, toilets, clean drinking water and playgrounds.

Clean drinking water has always been a big issue for public schools. A number of schools in the district have no water tanks and some that have them, don’t have drinkable water. A number of public school students get sick after drinking water from these tanks.
