Education is considered as the cheapest defense of a nation. But the down trodden
condition of education in Pakistan bears an ample testimony of the fact that it is unable to
defend its own sector. Though 72 years have been passed and 23 policies and action plans have been introduced yet the educational sector is waiting for an arrival of a savior. The govemment of Pervaiz Musharraf invested heavily in education sector and that era saw a visible positive educational change in Pakistani society. Now a days, the economic situation in Pakistan is under stress and education is the worse effected sector in Pakistan.
The Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan says,”The state of Pakistan shall remove illiteracy and provide free and compulsory secondary education within minimum possible period.”
In Human Development Report Pakistan is placed at 136th position for having just 49.9% educated populace. The primary, completion rate in Pakistan, given by Date Center
of UNESCO, is 33.8% in females and 47.18% in males, which shows that people in the 6th
largest country of the world are unable to get the basic education.
Estimating the value of education, the Government should take solid steps on this issue. Implementation instead of projecting policies should be focused on. Al‐ location of funds should be made easy from provinces to districts and then to educational institutes. Workshops must be arranged for teachers. Foreign states are using LSS system. This should be inducted in Pakistani schools to improve the hidden qualities of children. Technical education must be given to all the Classes. The education board of Punjab has projected a plan to give tech- education to the children in Industrial workers which is also require in KPK along with Trible areas. Promotion of the primary education is the need of time. Teachers, professors and educationists should be consulted while devising any plan, syllabus or policy. The
State seems to give up her responsibility and totally relying on private sector. The need of time is to bring education in its original form to masses. Burdening students with so much books will not work as he will not understand what the world is going to do next moment. Education is the only cure of the instability in the state and can bring revolution through evolution, by eradicating the Social evils. This is how to remove illiteracy in Pakistan.
