The stress laid upon the acquisition of education, in all noble societies, cannot be exaggerated . It has been the fundamental ingredient in the success and progress of all the civilizations of the world. Islam made the procurement of education and knowledge compulsory for everyone.

Sadly, the education system of Pakistan has its cons and these flaws are hindering its reach and deliverance. There is no standard board and educational system in Pakistan that is disseminated in the whole country.

This basic and vital requirement of the society should be same for everyone but contrary to it more than 30 different education boards are working in different regions of Pakistan and are playing an injurious role to the educational development of our country. These different boards are functioning on separate terms and ideals. They are based on unequal and asymmetrical lines, which is promoting a sense of disparity in the country.

The literacy rate of this country is already disheartening and the presence of different types of educational systems is making matters worse.

Financial and social status of a family decides the nature of education they will acquire, rendering them unable to perform at an equal platform . The fact that poor people aren’t able to let their children attain standard education as a result of financial constrains is tragic and these divergent systems aren’t providing equal opportunities to all the classes of Pakistan. While the rich class is getting education of international reputation, the education provided to the poor is unproductive and is not of quality.

Time has come that the government should reconsider its educational policies and take the necessary measures that are required to establish uniform and effective educational system in the whole country so that all the citizens can attain similar education and thrive productively in a more competitive and egalitarian atmosphere.
