Problems of Education in Pakistan

(Abdul Moiz Siddiqui, Karachi)

Pakistan emerged on the world map on 14th August, 1947. Since then she has faced a number of problems on her way to progress. All of these issues are major and are badly effecting our society. Perhaps the greatest loss comes in the area of education.
 


Whether or not this is a direct result of Pakistan's economic problems,it is undoubtedly connected with so many resources directed towards the aforementioned debt payment,educational improvements are given and inordinately low priority.

In addition, Musharraf's military dictatorship has understandably not placed great emphasis on education in Pakistan.

This is evident upon examination of Pakistan's overall literacy rate of 37.8% (50% for men and 24.4% for women). Literacy being defined as those over 15 who can read and write. In term of population, low literacy rates are often observed with high population growth. A poorly educated population is unlikely to participate in family planning or any other form of population control.
 


 

Secondary, a poor educated populace makes Pakistan a poor choice for the foreign investors that it so desperately needs. Further more,the extremely low literacy rate among Pakistani women (24.4%) lends itself to a society where most women never enter the labor force,creating less incentives for them to limit the size of their families. This is best illustrated by the fact that only 38 million of Pakistan's 141 million people make up the entire labor force.

Grim concerns are those needed utmost attention from those who are at the helm of affairs. It also illustrates the lack of or poor interest in case of education in decision-making circles.

The budget which Government secure for the Education is quiet less as compare to the other progress countries of the Subcontinent, the provinces where the ratio of illiteracy rates are in danger where Government should increase the budget.

Actually, there in no any institute or monitory organization who works sincerely to promote Education and maintain the same level of Education in all the regions and districts of Pakistan thats why Education is becoming a major problem in Pakistan.

the main hurdle in case of education is unemployment. Where MA, MSc are doing labour work there no body is attracted by education. Secondly the standard of eduction does not fulfil the present time requirements. We r educating the poeple according to 100 years old methods.
