The country has 5 different educational systems plus an ivy league syndrome in the upper classes no industries, no skilled professional jobs and we are pseudo ecstatic for the tandoori boy (bread maker) getting a BA (bachelor of arts) in Punjab, Pakistan.
kudos to the postive thinking of a tandoori boy for using his time wisely and to make something of it better than nothing!!
a) BA in Pakistan means NOTHING (there are a 1000 reasons for that)
b) doesn’t justify having different schooling systems at primary levels, for the rich and poor separating the sacred cows from the sacrificial lambs!
c) pls be aware that our intolerance hatred and extremism actually begins in schools only.the richie rich sacred cows in the country shedding alligator tears over plight of poor can easily adopt poorly-staffed and under-funded govt schools.
d) which should provide whats necessary for the country, a moderately competitive academic and skilled education system but they r too scared and insecure of providing the level playing field.
More education facts:
- One in five adults in the developing world — almost 862 million people — cannot read or write.
- Most illiterate persons are female. In more than 20 developing nations, illiteracy rates amongst women exceed 70%.
- As much as 115 million children of primary school age are not enrolled in school.
- More than 226 million children do not attend secondary school.
- Many children who do enroll in school do not graduate with even the most basic reading and math skills because their schools do not have enough teachers, books or facilities to provide a quality education.
- Across the world many children miss out on their education because:
- They are made to work to help support their families,
- They are recruited into armed forces and become child soldiers,
- Their families do not have the means to pay for schooling,
- Discrimination and racism undermine their chance to receive an education,
- They face violence as they pursue their education. This is the case for girls in areas where they are threatened with extreme physical harm (eg. acid attacks) for the seemingly harmless act of attending school.
- In most developing countries, public school is not free. The costs of books, uniforms, and teachers’ salaries are borne by the students’ families.
- School fees and related costs are a common barrier to education. These charges are a greater burden for children from poor families, and disproportionately affect those who are racial and ethnic minorities, members of Indigenous communities and migrants.
- Girls are more likely to be excluded from school than boys when there isn’t enough money to go round. As many as two out of three out-of-school children are girls.
- Social traditions and deep-rooted religious and cultural beliefs are most often the barriers to expanding girls’ educational opportunities in undeveloped countries around the world.
- Educated girls and women are less vulnerable to HIV infection, human trafficking and other forms of exploitation, are more likely to marry later, raise fewer children who are more likely to go to school, and make important contributions to family income.
