Pakistan is facing poor education quality ever since its existence. The right to education is for both men and women and it is enshrined within the Constitution of Pakistan. The Article 25-A Pakistan states that,
“The State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of five to sixteen years in such manner as may be determined by law.”
When it comes to primary education in many government schools, it is too pathetic to mention here. The problem is not faced by a single city or province but it is a national issue. Here I am not declining the fact that many steps have been taken by the different governments to improve the educational system in Pakistan particularly at the primary and secondary levels.
Educational system in Pakistan
Each province is making and introducing progressive reforms to strengthen its educational system in Pakistan. However, just an introduction to these reforms is not enough, we need to focus on the implementation of these reforms as well. This seemed to be a tough challenge for our government.
Unfortunately, in Pakistan, these challenges and issues keep on hindering the primary goals of the education to be achieved successfully. So, the higher authorities need to focus more on the quality of education given at the primary and secondary levels.
