Education is no doubt one of the most important investments a country can make. Without quality education no country can survive with dignity and respect. Pakistan’s profile in this sector is far from impressive; the education sector direly needs overhauling through constructive reforms. Steps to make the syllabus more relevant and accurate are overdue. PM has rightly hinted at declaring an educational emergency in the country as we have no more time to waste. Moreover, it is good to note that PM has approved the construction of 1000 schools in KP’s earthquake affected areas. The time frame of one year is given to complete the task.
