Education determines the future of a nation. It is one of the basic factors which plays a great role in the development of a child’s progress, family, and nation. Our great leader Quaid-e-Azam also put emphasis on the education. He said,” education is a matter of life and death for Pakistan” and he was right. In 1947, we got freedom from British raj and got a separate land where we had nothing for us it was only education which helped us leading upward. Now, more than 60 years have been passed and we still are moving upward keeping our country proud at national and international level. Education plays a great role in technology and progress. Today, Pakistan is facing many problems in the education sector. Some of them are medium of education , disparity of system at provincial level, gender discrimination, lack of technical education, low allocation of funds, inefficient teachers, poverty, corruption, social imbalance , mismanagement of system, infrastructure problems, private school system, lack of educational policies, increase in population, delay in renewal of policies and syllabus/ political interference and many more. In human development report, Pakistan is placed at the 136th position because 49.9% population comes under the definition of education. This percentage of illiteracy rate is alarming not for the government but also for the country. By this rate. We cannot think of surviving and get ahead with other developed countries. But still, with unity and by working together and tirelessly we can help in decreasing this illiteracy rate down. Some of the solutions for the problems of the educational system can be English should be medium of instruction, hiring of a talented and qualified staff, fulfilling the lack of teachers, primary education should be made compulsory, increasing in teachers incentives, translation of foreign research into local language checking on distinctive education, scholarships and financial support to students, giving financial packages, betterment of education policies and teacher workshop, infusing technical education and promoting of primary education. It is time to stand up and work desperately and deliberately in the education sector in order to turn the burden of the population into a productive human resource. Our country needs us and we can only help our country by spreading free education in our nation’s street.
