Education is the backbone of a country. For a country to prosper, its educational system must be strong. Every year the government of Pakistan allocates a substantial amount of money for education. Unfortunately the government has not been able to make an impact however; the private sector has been more than successful. At the time of partition, missionary schools and those run by philanthropists were imparting education to the masses. Now a number of schools have been opened with the aim of educating the younger generations.
Pakistan is one country with a huge number of its population in their early years. Naturally, the requirement of new and more schools and a good education has increased a lot on the recent past. A lot of new school systems are there now which are based on modern education system, but there are some schools which are still considered better than the others. These schools have produced doctors, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, actors, models, educationalists and many more professionals some of whom have won accolades for Pakistan abroad.
It is well said that ‘Education is the third eye of a man’. And school is the first step towards the world of education for a child after home. No country can make significant economic progress if majority of its citizens cannot get primary education. The Government of Pakistan aims to provide free of cost elementary education to all children. It has established hundreds of schools, which have been imparting education throughout the country. But the percentage of children going to private schools has increased rapidly, not only in urban but also in rural areas. The main reason being the quality of education and environment of private schools are much better than the public schools.
