Ghani Criticizes School Curriculum; Says It Should Improve
Meanwhile, Ghani inaugurated two public projects where he urged businessmen to invest in education and help in improvement of students and schools
 

Ringing in the new school year in Balkh province on Saturday, President Ashraf Ghani said the current curriculum needs changes and that the required improvements will be made in it in the near future.

“The current curriculum is not addressing all the needs of teachers and students. Who can learn 16 subjects at the same time? It only puts more pressures on teachers,” he told an event in Mazar-e-Sharif city in Balkh.

Meanwhile, Ghani inaugurated two public projects where he urged businessmen to invest in education and help in improvement of students and schools.

"I will assign a national commission which will include teachers and students’ representatives, experts and private sector to review the curriculum and make it better," he said.

Ghani called on the people to stay united and said those who stand against the Constitution will be counted as enemies of the Afghans.

“I am not the kind of person who cannot recognize foes and friends. Anyone who takes arm against Afghanistan, against our believes and against our national unity, is our enemy,” he stated.

Ghani pointed out to Balkh governor Atta Mohammad Noor’s efforts in improvements of the province and said he commends the governor’s achievements in recent years.

At the same event, Noor said he is worried about an increase in war in the northern parts of the country.

"It is a pleasure for me, for Balkh residents and for all Afghans. More efforts must be made and you will do it," Noor said.

He said plans should be prepared to enable security forces to take offensive stance against insurgents.

“We hope that an effective plan should be made to foil enemy's plots and defeat them. We face defeat because of having a defensive stance against insurgents. It is better to have an offensive stance,” he said.

In the past six months, it is the second trip of the president to the northern Balkh province.
