Nowadays, the economic situation in Pakistan is under stress and education is the worst-affected sector in Pakistan. The educational system of Pakistan is based on unequal lines. The medium of education is different in both public and private sectors. This creates a sort of disparity among people, dividing them into two segments.

One of the other problem is that the teachers in government schools are not well-trained. People who do not get job in any other sector, try their luck in the educational system. They are not professionally trained teachers which is why they are unable to train a nation. Lack of funds is another factor that restricts education. The allocation of funds for education is very low. It is only 1.5 to 2.0 percent of the total GDP.

The Government of Pakistan should take solid steps on this issue. Implementation instead of projecting policies should be focused on. Allocation of funds should be made easy from provinces to districts and then to educational institutes. Workshops must be arranged for teachers. We should realise that quality education is the only cure of the instability in the state and can bring revolution through evolution.
