As majority of Pakistanis are deprived of their very basic right of getting educated they never truly become independent and are exploited and influenced by those who are cunning enough to do so. Lack of education also creates great disparities in social classes. Corruption, feudalism, living on loans etc are some of the problems that arise as a result of poor education system.
People fail to elect the right public representatives for them and end up losing whatever they have. In order for this dismal state of affairs to change, it is mandatory that the education budget be raised to the point where the country really needs it.
