Pakistan First From Bottom

Pakistan ranked last out of 14 countries in Asia-Pacific in an investigation into developing countries’ commitment to basic education according to a report prepared jointly by the Asian South Pacific Bureau of Adult Education and the Global Campaign for Education.

Countries were graded and ranked based on their performance on: Complete basic education; state action on free education; quality inputs; gender equality and overall equity — to depict their commitment to basic education.
2 out of 3 Pakistani adults are illiterate, with the same proportion of secondary school age children out of school; 4 out of 10 children are missing primary school; girls and women constitute majority of those who are denied access to complete basic education.
Remarks’ section for President General Pervez Musharraf reads, “Pervez spends less per pupil than most of his South Asian neighbours and charges user fees in full. The ‘Teacher’s such low spending can only deliver pitiable results. In all aspects, there is clearly little quality and state action and commitment in the public education Pervez offers, given the spending and the charges. This puts him at the bottom of the class too.

The report also states: 45.3 % have no access to early childhood care and education; 40.3 % to primary school, and 76.1 % to secondary school. The level of adult illiteracy in Pakistan, at 58.9 % is, 1 of the 3 highest among the 14 countries ranked in the report.
On the scale of 14, Thailand is 1st. 2nd is Malaysia, 3rd Sri Lanka, 4th Philippines, 5th China, 6th Vietnam, 7th Bangladesh, 8th Cambodia, 9th India, 10th Indonesia, 11th Nepal, 12th Papua New Guinea, 13th Solomon Islands and Pakistan is 14th.

    Sad is a very small word for it. These high class schools are for high class (filthy rich) people who are not more than 0.0001 %. Where do you live in Lahore - Gulberg – Shadman – Defence ? Just walk around and look for realities. Do you have a male or maid servant ? Try to find out his or her history. Our rulers eat away most of the money extracted from people as taxes. This is only 2.5 % of GDP has been kept for education and people with monthly salaries in six figures have been taken as consultants.

    Sir, I don't live in Lahore. and the locale I am a resident of in Karachi is typically mid-middle class. I realise we are luckeir than most and it bugs me no end. It's just that our parents knew how important good eductaion was added to the fact that we were a lucky lot, Dad was in the gulf and many things that are luxuries here were basics of life to us while growing up. But we have returned. It was difficult to readjust to life here but we managed. Mom always told us to be grateful for what we have and I am.
    The area we live in has teaching centres and schools manifold but all impart sub standard education. Reason: it is now a venture, anyone with some money and space (or not) can open up an english medium, grammar public school, hire young girls just after their Inter. for a measly PKR 700 - 2.k K max.
    Our family is what constitutes that silent, tax paying, morally upright till it's stiffling, urban majority.
    I love the role we have to play in the soceity but I hate the impotence that is part of teh deal.
    I am always riled up sir. always and more often than not I am found lecturing some unsuspecting bloke on rights and wrongs. my family says that is wrong and unheard of any decent pakistani female. but i simply can't see things going to the dogs and not protest.

    I am sorry to have placed you in Lahore in stead of Karachi. I had made a wild guess because of your mentioning of teasing on iss-kool. In Karachi there are many who use the
    same pronunciation.

    I appreciate your thoughts and pray for your good health, long life, success and happy life. Aameen. I have few near relatives in Karachi. I visit them occasionally but some how I failed to develop liking for Karachi.
