Education update

Friday, May 17, 2024

Pakistan’s education system is facing a severe crisis, with far-reaching consequences for the country’s future. Despite the importance of education in shaping young minds, our education system is failing to deliver on its promises. The quality of education is alarmingly low, with students neither acquiring the skills to earn a decent living nor learning the ethical values that are essential for a civilized society. As a result, many young Pakistanis are being left behind, ill-equipped to compete in the modern job market.

The consequences are stark. Unemployment and poverty are on the rise, and social unrest is becoming increasingly common. It is imperative that we take immediate action to address this crisis. We need to overhaul our education system, focusing on quality teaching, modern curricula, and ethical values. We must also invest in vocational training and skills development to prepare our youth for the challenges of the 21st century.
