KABUL (Pajhwok): Acting Higher Education Minister Nada Mohammad Nadeem says delegations have been sent to different countries to persuade Afghan teachers to come back to the country.

Nadeem, who visited northern Balkh province, addressed a joint meeting of provincial officials, university teachers and students.

The minister said delegations had been sent to different countries to invite Afghan teachers who had gone abroad to return to the country.

He said they wanted to bring back teachers living abroad to work for education and teachers’ capacity building.

Nadeem also said laboratories in universities were important and they had set aside 250 million afghanis this year for establishing laboratories in universities in order students could do practical studies in addition to theoretical studies.

He called increasing the capacity of teachers as essential, revealing that his ministry had earmarked 450 million afghanis for the capacity building of teachers by sending them abroad for master’s and doctorate degrees.

Nadeem also assured university graduates of providing them job opportunities, saying the issue had been discussed with some ministries.

Speaking on the occasion, Balkh University chancellor Ziaul Haq Zia Karimi said a handful of teachers had left the country because they were not committed to the country, the nation and the system.

He said all teachers remaining in the country were committed to the system, the country and the people.

A representative of teachers, Saleh Mohammad Rasakh, said that changes should be brought to the curriculum of religious seminaries.

He said Islamic history and literature should be taught in religious seminaries in order religious scholars could also obtain necessary information in this regard.

Balkh deputy governor Norul Hadi Abu Idris said modern sciences were also important besides religious education to serve to the people and the country.

Before arriving in Balkh, Nadeem travelled to Bamyan, Faryab, Sari Pul and Jawzjan provinces.

He had said the Islamic Emirate was not against modern education.
