One thing about the beginning…

After Partition, Pakistan  went through a period of decentralization. That is, power was disbursed to an overseeing capacity instead of locally being implemented. First world countries do that to developing countries.

Do you think that if in order for Pakistan to succeed in education, that power be allocated locally to smaller districts that administers funding, curriculum, teacher training as would fit that community.

Just curious. I would love to read  your comments!


Your education

How were you educated? At home? In the mosque? In an Oxford school?

When did you know you wanted to become a doctor, lawyer, engineer, or development worker?

I would love to know your thoughts on the education system in Pakistan. From tribal schools to big urban schools. I want to know your experience. If you want to write about it, please do and submit your content to our Editorial Team. But any explanation will do.

I believe that if everyone who liked this post, blog or twitter would work intentionally to improve education in their community, that the impact would be grand and glorious. Let us encourage each other as we move Pakistan towards accomplishing 100% literacy.

Excerpt from Women’s Literacy

“There are less women educated in each province of Pakistan than male population . . . Pakistani women need to read labels on a package of food, prices at the local markets, a bus or train schedule, a contract or a map, medical prescriptions, road signs. warning labels, and more importantly be able to read and write their own language.”
