Dr Pathan was optimistic that the workshop would will be conducted during the two-day moot. He was of the view that research was a tool for the quest of truth, knowledge and understanding.

On the occasion, Prof Qalandar Shah Lakiyari said that the quality education was imparted by the universities in the province but the condition of basic education was deplorable in Sindh. He said that the quality of education in Sindh had deteriorated during the last several years as people associated with education had not played their due role for improvement in the quality of education.

“The main cause of deterioration of primary education in Sindh is the presence of ineligible officials who are in majority. If we ameliorate our primary schooling, it will be beneficial and we will be able to develop and progress”, he said.

Lakiyari further said that without education, no improvement in the society could be expected and added that teachers training was a key factor in improving the standard of education. He said that HEC was playing a leading role in training of teachers.

He hoped that the Sindh University would extend its all-out support and cooperation for the training of teachers and promotion of education.
