The standard of education in Pakistan

Education plays a vital role in the development and progress of a state. Progress of any country depends upon its quality of education and literacy rate of that country.

The standard of education in Pakistan is falling around-the-clock due to locks of meaning and purpose. The planning for its development and worth-while standard always remains up to in papers only. Pakistan has been facing problems since independence in the field of education.

Article 37-b urges the governments to

‘’Remove illiteracy and provide free and compulsory secondary education within a minimum possible period.’’

Regrettably, none of the successive governments assigned priority to education. According to Pakistan Education Statistics, approximately 22.6m children are out of school. According to UNESCO, the literacy rate in Pakistan is 56.4pc. Pakistan’s education spending is 2.83 percent of its total budget, and only four universities are ranked among the world top-1000 universities. Do you think this rating is productive for the contentment of Pakistan’s education system?

The education system of Pakistan is composed of 31% educational institutes under the coordination of private sectors while 69% are public institutes. Further statistics suggest that there are 260,903 institutions that are facilitating 41,018,384 students throughout the medium of 1,535,461 teachers. The system encompasses 180,846 public institutions and 80,057 private institutions.

Hence dolefully stating, again in 2018, the federal as well as provincial governments, failed to fulfill the promises made to the public regarding the reforms in the education system under the Constitution of Pakistan.
