Il­lit­er­acy in Pak­istan

The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL -

there­fore, it is a sig­nif­i­cant con­cern which should be se­ri­ously looked upon in or­der to de­velop Pak­istan's Econ­omy. And this is the main pri­or­ity of de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, in re­cent years, to foster the devel­op­ment and re­newal of pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion and to elim­i­nate il­lit­er­acy.

Il­lit­er­acy in the coun­try leads to lack of aware­ness in the so­ci­ety about the ben­e­fits of ed­u­ca­tion, destruc­tion in nu­mer­ous in­vest­ment busi­nesses and fruit­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties, lack of train­ing, in­suf­fi­cient teach­ing staff in ru­ral areas and all this means de­creased eco­nomic grow. More­over, proper ed­u­ca­tion stan­dards are not fol­lowed in schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties and also are not fol­low­ing cour­ses in ac­cor­dance with the in­ter­na­tional stan­dard.

Ed­u­ca­tion is an im­per­a­tive part of our so­ci­ety which can­not be avoided. If a per­son is not ed­u­cated, this will lead him/her to­wards choos­ing wrong des­ti­na­tions for his/her life. Ed­u­ca­tion builds all the sig­nif­i­cant qual­i­ties in a per­son for ex­am­ple, by get­ting ed­u­ca­tion, a per­son be­comes well-man­nered, punc­tual, strict, goalo­ri­ented, hard worker, achiever in life, and he/she plans ev­ery­thing be­fore im­ple­ment­ing any de­ci­sion, he/she be­comes care­ful be­fore hav­ing any loss in fu­ture, ed­u­ca­tion pro­motes proac­tive ap­proach in a per­son, it de­vel­ops self-con­fi­dence in a per­son, en­cour­ages a per­son to take the ap­pro­pri­ate field in his/her life with en­thu­si­asm.

Whereas, Youth is an im­por­tant fac­tor that should be con­sid­ered when pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tion. They are the young­sters of a na­tion that hope­fully be­come lead­ers in the fu­ture of a coun­try. It is the pe­riod of con­ver­sion of an in­di­vid­ual from ado­les­cence to an adult and he/she is now bet­ter able to un­der­stand ev­ery­thing, his/her mind opens, mood changes, there are phys­i­cal as well as men­tal changes in an in­di­vid­ual. This is a sig­nif­i­cant time of a per­son's life where he/she should be made aware, taught each and ev­ery­thing about fu­ture chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties that he/she is go­ing to face in his/her com­ing years. Th­ese young­sters should be made phys­i­cally, men­tally, and emo­tion­ally strong, that will help the na­tion to be­come suc­cess­ful. Trans­fer­ring all the ed­u­ca­tion in dif­fer­ent fields of sub­jects will make the youth more flex­i­ble, open-minded, en­hance aware­ness and will im­prove their in­tel­lec­tual, cog­ni­tive and lis­ten­ing skills.

So, we should im­prove our ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem to be more pro­duc­tive. There is no doubt to say that only proper ed­u­ca­tion will be able to move the wheel of progress to­wards suc­cess.
