Tharparkar: ‘Ghost Schools’ Haunt Public Schools

By Sajid Bajeer

Even today ‘ghost schools’ continue to haunt the public schools in Sindh as they exist only on paper or the record of the Education Department. According to the official data, there are 6,721 non-functional schools in the province. Out of these schools, 4,540 are non-functional and 2,181 are said to be ghost schools. Reportedly, ghost schools in Tharparkar receive funds regularly from the Education Department but they have nothing to do with providing education.

PakVoices’ reporter Sajid Bajeer exposed one such non-functional school in Tharparkar, district.
