The Student’s Solidarity March, which was conducted yesterday, has highlighted some serious issues that have contributed to the degradation of the education system in Pakistan. The students, via an open letter, presented their grievances to the Prime Minister and enjoined all other students for the protests in their respective cities. They tried to draw the attention of the higher authorities towards the ‘obvious’ flaws in the education system of Pakistan.

They mentioned the issues like the inability of the infrastructure to accommodate a large number of students, the glaring issue of fewer universities, increasing tuition fees and the presence of fake campuses/unrecognized educational institutes all over the country.

They did not just point out the worsened quality of education but also protested against the ban on the student unions.

Students highlighted the issues directly affecting the women and have argued about the way the right-wing extremism has badly influenced the institutes. The letter also discussed the poor hostel facilities. It also explained that the students were deprived of their right to exercise freedom of speech.
