The education system in Pakistan... By Yaseen

Education can turn around a nation's fortune and bring a positive change to any society. Well-educated nations are always successful in every field of life. Pakistan is one of those developing countries that face threatening problems and education is at the top of the list. Unfortunately, the majority of schools are in poor condition. There is no accountability: some continue to receive funds but, in reality, they are nothing more than ghost schools. In rural areas, feudal lords mostly control the buildings of public schools. They use them as marriage halls and congregation grounds. Due to the bad system of government education, people prefer elite education for their children. The elite class education system in Pakistan is very successful. Today, even the poor prefer to send their children to these private schools but, because of the high fee structure, many aspirants are unable to do so.
There should be appropriate training programmes for the teachers of government schools. Teachers in government schools must be highly qualified and their salaries should be according to their needs and qualifications. Pakistan has always been criticised for its education system. It has been more than six decades since our independence yet we are unable to establish a comprehensive and effective education structure. For a better future for Pakistan, it is mandatory to sort out the education system.
