Education is a fundamental need for a human being’s upbringing. It’s the particular trait that accounts for a person to be a responsible citizen in a society.
Pakistan suffers from a major void when it comes to education. A staggering percentage of children still do not go to school today and they mainly belong from the destitute lot. What is worst that these numbers are rising drastically and we are not seeing a rapid change to counterfeit it.
The reality is grim about education in Pakistan. It only favors those who have the resources to afford it, while the poor and needy only have to scramble towards sub-standard choices, or in other words, government institutions. Indeed, public schools are not up to the mark. Educational reforms for these public schools have not been revised and attended in proper terms.
If today a Pakistani needs to acquire a quality education, he has to head to quality schools and be ready to empty his pockets. It is a reality that educational institutions, ranging from primary and secondary to college always charge a shocking amount of finance in exchange for the standard education.
