    This associated degree program will enable the pupil teachers to teach English medium syllabus in a perfect way. But this program should be limited to two years instead of three years due to some certain reasons in Pakistan. We hope to find quality teachers in Pakistan after the completion of ADE.

    Really, Education play a vital role in the development and progress of a country, not a for country, also for the personal development.
    So, in my point of view, these steps regarding education should be enhanced for our coming generation.
