The standard of our education would not improve in our schools, colleges and universities until and unless we focus our energies for bringing qualitative changes within the same instead of concentrating merely on quantity (attracting only maximum enrollment or admissions of students in different educational institutions). And the issue of quality education cannot be tackled without really allocating sufficient budget for education both at the development and the non development side. There should be at least 5% allocation for education out of countrys total GDP as is done by many South East Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Korea (both North and South) and Taiwan. Without giving priority to the vital sector of development i.e education, we would, surely, miss the train of development in rest of other fields of life, as well.
