Pakistan has always been credited as one of the few fortunate countries whose future could never be dark because half of its population consists of youngsters and children. The ratio keeps on growing every year and promises the bright prospect of youngsters taking over the reins of the country and taking it forward with new innovative ideas. At one end, it does sound promising but on the contrary, Pakistan’s literary backwardness has seized Pakistan’s ability to cope with the rest of the world’s technological and economic progress.
The state of Pakistan has failed to ensure that all of its children and young youth acquire standardized skills and technological knowledge. This has debilitated Pakistan’s efforts to compete with developing nations. One of the reasons why many children and youngsters fail to acquire education is the poor economic output of the country which does not allow everyone to suffer the financial burden of acquiring education. These children and youngsters belong to poor families who fight their misery every day for a single piece of bread, and other than making these ends meet. Everything else sounds nothing but a luxury.
The country’s academia further widens the economic divide by simultaneously running separate curriculums for the poor and the rich. Thesis writing services in Pakistan share the information about how poor children despite acquiring education from the Government-run educational institutions fail to compete with the level of knowledge that students belonging to Private sector schools have acquired. Since the government administrated schools are poorly run, by unskilled and unprofessional teachers and lack basic infrastructure such as clean rooms, benches to sit at, whiteboards for a practical display of information as well as laboratories where students could experiment with various scientific and IT concepts.
Due to these reasons, the country only succeeds in producing a handful of learned men who contribute to the country’s progress; whereas, millions of others simply settle at securing low jobs which do not offer them anything but a piece of bread that helps them maintain the relation between the soul and body for a little longer.
Gendered prejudices and a Patriarchal mindset has further plagued the country’s literacy growth by discouraging female education or direct female participation in the job market. Females make up 51% of Pakistan’s total population and by discouraging the participation of this 51% in the workplace sector, Pakistan has paralyzed its functioning. Unless or until females are allowed to contribute to the country’s progress directly.
Pakistan would always function at its bare minimum, and any country which does not utilize all of its human resources never succeeds in progressing and moving forward. Its population becomes burdensome for it because it is of no use to it. If Pakistan wants to compete with the rest of the world, it would have to necessarily utilize more of its national budget on building schools and providing free education to all, rather than spending on buying artillery and constructing metros. It would have to formulate a curriculum that applies to all, and does not belong to a centuries-old school of thought.
