Department of Education
Dr. Shehzadi Seema
The Department of Education embraces the principles of increased transparency, participation, and collaboration as essential to accomplishing its mission. By focusing on open practices, we anticipate the creation of new information and knowledge that will help to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.
The Department has developed a set of strategic goals and objectives for openness that will drive its work forward and allow it to measure and assess its progress, like:
- Increase the Department’s transparency and accountability.
- Solicit and incorporate more public input into Department operations.
- Increase collaboration and communication with other organizations.
- Create a culture of openness within the Department.
The Department envisions a world in which education positively contributes to each person's ability to reach her potential in acting for society's good.
The Department’s mission is to prepare learner-sensitive educators with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to contribute to a better society.
