One system for all Education plays a vital role in the progress of a country and responsible for its success. Education in Pakistan has divided into four categories. First the Cambridge school system, where the foreign syllabus is taught. They are very expensive and only for elite class people. Middle class can’t afford it.
It is a stage that develops and shapes the future of the students. It is in the center of Education system as before it is school education and after it is the university education. According to Leaping Forward a report on Higher Education in Pakistan (2006), “The education sector, especially the higher education has been very much neglected in Pakistan since its independence in 1947. The quality of secondary education, especially in Schools is far below standards in developed countries. It is mostly through a School/colleges/university education that young citizens learn and acquire these skills.
But the education situation in Pakistan is very unhappy. The less education make our country unable to deal with the challenges of this modern century. Over population: The growth rate of Pakistan is becoming very high. There are very limited resources in the Pakistan. Unemployment: The biggest problem Pakistan facing is the unemployment.
Nowadays, the economic situation in Pakistan is under prosperity and education sector is progressing day by day in Pakistan. Problems in the Education system of Pakistan There are some of the problems in education system in Pakistan. Which are as under: 1. Dual Education System There is a double standard in the educational system of Pakistan. Medium of education is different in both, public and private sector.
Pakistan is facing many challenges from the lack of access to basic health care services, to poverty, illiteracy, women’s low status, unhygienic water supplies and sanitation and the most important problem Pakistan is facing is unemployment. Pakistan has one of the highest unemployment rate in the world. According to UN Pakistan has approximately 5.8% unemployment rate. The unemployment rate in Pakistan is increasing and due to increasing amount of unemployment many crime takes place, Pakistan has a lot of natural resources but due to poor governance we can’t use them with full potential. You can find many educated people for example doctors, engineers and graduates roaming around for job in Pakistan but couldn’t find a job worth their education.
They suffer from different forms of discrimination and hardships in everyday life. There are a lot of reasons why women are not allowed to enter the workforce. They are disadvantaged when it comes to opportunity and learning. The educational factor is a major issue in Pakistan. A lot of girls are getting education but a smaller number is able to proceed to post-secondary level and out of them most are not allowed to participate in the workforce.
In the education sector, the share of special needs education is too sad. The educational and rehabilitation services provided to children with disabilities were not worth mentioning at the time of the establishment of Pakistan. After independence, Pakistan had to face some serious challenges, and thus did not place appropriate emphasis on special education, or even education. The lack of resources, financial and human resources, among other
Pakistan has faced the lack of a stable representative government and remained under a non-democratic and military rule for a long time. This was a biggest problem in Pakistan at that time. Because there was not constitutional set up from 1947 to 1956 for a long time. And then when the constitution made there was no check and balance and the power was shifted to the central government. Therefore such political system, the center’s role became dominant over the affairs of the unit and the major of federalism were discouraged.
Pakistan is a poor and under developed country. Most of its population breathes in absolutely hostile circumstances. Some reports reveal that more than forty percent population of Pakistan lives below the line of poverty. A large number of people in our country do not have good place to live, this despondent condition has given birth to a large number of beggars and poor people who live on the charity of the rich. The economic condition of an average individual is very pitiable.
Pakistan education infrastructure is poor. Education standard is low and is not set according to international standards, students are not encourage for practical implementation of the knowledge they gain. Most of the students are books sticky and no ideas of the real situations. Technical education is quite better in Pakistan, Pakistan has a wide technical infrastructure but to lack of technology these technical institution are not providing the latest techniques demanded by the modern market.
