Ideally, Quality Education is the responsibility of Govt. But unfortunately, our National Education System have a lot of issues in view Policy, Quality & Quantity. By Policy it’s based on “Divide & Rule” (a Policy proposed by Lord Macaulay in 19th Century to prolong British Rule over subcontinent and prepare a “clerk workforce” for Industry).
By Quality, it’s just testing the memory of students by “Ratta Education System” and not preparing them for their real life. It’s neither transforming Knowledge & Values nor Skills.
And by quantity, it’s unable to cater all the children of Pakistan (22.6 million children are out of school reported by Dawn news on 9.3.17).
As you know Education System is a sub-system of our National System. So, perfect solution is to create a complete social change including Political, Economic & Social System of Pakistan. Because root cause is not Education System but overall Nation System.
But if we talk about Private Educational Institutes, what they are delivering? They are charging Fees for….. Are they delivering at least “real life and professional Skills” so that their students could be successful in real industry? This is the point Private Educational Institutes need to think on… because being human it’s our responsibility to deliver something real to students. One day, all of us will be accountable for. Parents have shown trust in us being Educators. What we are doing with students being Educators? How we are shaping their minds?
Think on it and be the real EDUCATORS!
