Some of the very prestigious government owned universities are in a miserable condition. The classrooms are haphazard and without adequate lighting. These institutions are very poorly maintained and lack the latest educational technology such as projectors. This exemplifies the height of ignorance by the government. A deplorable environment undoubtedly effects the productivity and outcome of students. The government should provide more funds, especially technology funds to such universities. This is what will have a positive impact on the education system.
