With all the brains in the world, why haven’t we opted for peace and pen?
It’s hopeless when it comes to the policy makers of Pakistan.
Even many poor countries have higher literacy rate as compare to Pakistan. Pakistan has been facing problems since independence in the field of education.
As confirmed by Kaiser Bengali in his working paper; (History of Educational Policy Making and Planning in Pakistan,1999), That was a very crucial time as people were adjusting themselves in a new place and environment.
Neither our schools nor our madrassas (Islamic education centres) are educating our youth in this regard.
In the institutions that are supposed to polish them into scholars for east and west, they are being provided with degrees that only help them develop into “money machines”.The education provided in madrassas is not compatible to the modern day requirements.It is an unfair race, a madrassa student’s starting line and finishing line is more apart than the other students.Firstly, in current situation more attention is being paid to the higher education instead of primary education.In small villages primary schools are not progressing.Kaiser Bengali (1999) argues that whatever progress was made in the field of education was inspired from India.The truth is that, at the time of independence Pakistan had only one university, the University of Punjab.6: university education (graduation and higher study).Education policies are very good but, unfortunately, there are many problems in this system and its implementations.By AMIR MUHAMMAD JAMAL KHAN YEAR 0 Education plays an import role in the progress and development of a state.Progress of any country depends upon its literacy rate and quality of education in that country. Unfortunately, our own country Pakistan is a backward one regarding its literacy rate.
