“The state shall provide free and compulsoryeducation to the children of the age group 5 to 16 years in such a manner asmay be determined by law”. The educational structure in Pakistan is formed insix levels preschool for age 3 to 5 years, primary school which formed forgrade one to five and middle school for grade six to eight and then High,intermediate and higher secondary school etc. After developing such huge structuresand laws the situation of educational system is still miserable. History ofPakistan is full of injustice with the educational system. They provide morebudgets to other institutes rather than education department.

Objectives;Ø Togive a deep insight on the circumstances of the educational system of Pakistan.Ø Toprovide reasons for the failure of the educational systemØ Totake public opinion about reforms in this system How educational system is currently working inPakistan 03Chapter 2Literature ReviewQ1. What are the reasons for the failure of theeducation system in Pakistan?Pakistan is facing manyproblems like terrorism, poverty and political insecurity. These issues existin our society due to lack of awareness & literacy, and low standard systemof education. Pakistan is facing numberof failures in educational system.
The education system in Pakistan is notproviding the quality education nor providing the skills that requires forprofessional careers. Institutions that strengthen the education department nowhave become the cause of social instability. Pakistan is a state that stands onIslamic ideology. Unfortunately, the people, who teach and interpret religious andformal education, are not helping masses about tolerance.
That is basic essencewhich we could get out education. Education teaches harmony and when peoplelearned it they start trying to protect cultural and ethnic norms of thesociety. Another main reason for the failure is that untrained teachers atprimary or at secondary level are not fulfilling the needs of the students. Inschools they do not introduce modern curricula and effective methods whichcould help students to learn different things in an interesting way. The otherreason is that education system is facing shortage of teachers.
They do notcome to school for student-teacher interaction. The other big issue is thatstudents themselves don’t consider education as a tool to experience actualknowledge. They always have this thing in mind that they can get degree bygiving money.
How educational systemis currently working in Pakistan 04Curriculum of oureducation system is very old from rest of the world. It has not direct relationwith the student’s lives. One of the major problems of our country is lack ofvocational or technical education. Huge numbers of policies were introduced inthe history of Pakistan, but those policies didn’t show any result, becausethese policies were failed in the implementation process. Low budget from parliamentaryinstitution is given to this department. Pakistan is included in those under developingcountries that spend less than 2% from its annual budget on. Corruption is thebiggest disaster that is draining the overall resources of education.
It is themain hinder in the improvements of education department. The world consideredus as the most gender discriminating country. Education opportunities for menand women are not equal. It is just because of lack of awareness of higherauthorities because they have no concerns with common messes. Q2. What are thepossible improvements?Firstly, there shouldbe the implementation of current educational policies.
Before introducing newpolicies we should work on our previous or pending policies. The curriculumshould be updated and modernized according to the needs of our people. Methodof teaching should be changed to create an interactive environment withinschool setup. So, that student may feel free to discuss their problems withteachers. Profession wise who are best at teaching they preferably moves inforeign countries. They can serve their here and give their worthy services totheir home land. Government should facilitate such professionals for thebetterment of this platform. Lastly,parental socialization is the main player in this regard.
How educational systemis currently working in Pakistan 05 Giving them awarenessof education is very important because it can effectively work for their kidssocial and economic lives. One of the big issues is corruption that can beminimized through various strategies within the working places. People do thisact because of low income.
So, to reduce these factor law makers can introducefew policies for this cause. Government needs to increase the budget foreducation department because it is impossible to make improvements with lowbudget. By adopting these ideas ourstructure and situation of education system can change. Pakistan can set anexample of role model in front of the world. If we prepare our children withmodern knowledge they will learn advance education and will give back to their communities.It is the need of our generation we have to think about it. Otherwise, we willnot able to show an effective role to the world.

How educational system is currently working inPakistan 15Chapter4DiscussionEducational system ofour country cannot be compared to the other developing countries because wejust focus on degree or a paper that a student will earn during his educationalcareer. We do not focus on education in which a gain knowledge and groomed his personality.If we see the countries like China and Germany they have developed syllabus intheir own language. Here people do not focus on our regional language. We evendon’t have awareness of our mother tongue. We prefer to speak and write foreignlanguages because we have a mindset that if someone speaks good English thatperson is literary.
We can learn better skills of writing and listening in our ownlanguage. Kids failed are not able to perform well in schools because at home theirfamily members speak different language they use their mother tongue for bettercommunication. Moreover, the student teacher relation is not good and inresults students suffer from it. For providing quality education to our youngergeneration we do not need untrained teachers who are ruining the system. How educational systemis currently working in Pakistan 16Chapter5 ConclusionPakistan is facingplethora of problems in the domain of education. Due to this failure our studentsare not getting quality education that can make them good professional invarious fields.
Old educational policies and strategies are not helpful for thecurrent situation of this country. Also, the amendments in the current policiescan be considered supportive for the development of this system. We needprofessional with new ideas. The various education policies since independencehave only produced a mass of unemployed youth.
Nelson Mandela once said “Educationis the only powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. We talkedabout equality in Education and that is the basic right of every human being. Inour country there is a gendered biasness within educational system. Women get feweropportunities in pursuing their higher degree.
If some of them get higher leveldegree they do not go to the job market due to the family or societal presure. Reformsof our education system will take some time and it requires energetic anddedicated response. Hard work and constant effort of different people from differentgovernmental institutions can play an important role to change the currentsituation of our country.
