Education level of the young will be raised by providing benefit from education facilities in terms of equal opportunities and education received by them will prepare them in harmony with today’s conditions.
The youth, with proper guidance in primary and secondary education and according to their abilities will be given the opportunity to continue their higher education in departments they like.
