Shehzad Roy started his journey to travel across the country, on his bike in three months. Her other crew members are following him in a coaster.
He started his journey from GIlgit Baltistan and travelled through KP and Punjab. He has visited Hunza and some areas of Punjab and analysed that Government schools lack in basic infrastructure of education.
As well as he observed that low cast private schools are worse than Government schools. He observed that the life of students can be changed by providing them quality education.
He suggests that Head of the school should be empowered to bring positive changes in schools and Federal and Provincial Government should pay special attention on Education scenario as it is not much difficult task to bring constructive change in Education system.
He explains that according to existing education system, students are not being guided to join their respective field of interest. As well as he realized that the existing education system encourages rote memorization and students become disturbed when they have to face any out of course question.
A common drawback is being observed in Pakistani text books that these text books contain hatred material that is needed to be removed.
There is desperately need that text books should have problem based questions and students should be prepared to solve them using their talent and abilities.
Students should know the rational and meaning behind the concept instead of relying on rote memorization. Only through practical applicability of knowledge students would be able to put their hidden potentials out and excel throughout the world.
Viewers can see Shehzad Roy’s TV show Chal Para every Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm on GEO news.
