Unnecessary burden

When it comes to children, especially their education, our attitudes seem to be incredibly regressive. For example, it is not unusual in Pakistan’s cities and towns — as in many other countries — to see little boys and girls lugging around oversized school bags that are obviously much heavier than what they should be carrying.

Books over bullets by Sarah Awan

On July 6, the Norwegian government convened the Oslo Summit on Education for Development, building on the outcomes of the ambitious agenda set by world education ministers earlier this year at the World Education Forum in Incheon, Korea.

Education: time for a new purpose by Graham Peebles

Like all our current structures, education throughout the world is in crisis, and fundamental change is badly needed. Reform is under discussion in many countries and governments are debating how to alter the existing, inadequate methods. All to often, however, these discussions are limited by the existing ideologies: restructurings are motivated by the obsessive desire for economic growth, a narrow nationalistic approach to life and a simplistic view of the needs of the individual.

MANGOs by Syed Mansoor Hussain

in Pakistan, many things that the government should be doing are just not being done. Public health and education are two areas that are being ignored. As a result, the private sector and many religious NGOs are stepping in to provide assistance, the latter through their madrassas (seminaries).  There are many seminaries that provide free board as well as education to all their students. This is an important source of support for many poor families that otherwise cannot afford to take care of their children.

Maths & madressahs

It is tempting to think that the teaching of science, mathematics and English in madressahs would substantially reduce terrorism in the country. However, some terrorists (like the ones responsible for Sabin Mahmud’s murder and the Safoora massacre) had a good education, and one of them is even a business graduate from a prestigious institution.

Give learners an enterprising track

It is extremely important, or very important, for colleges and universities to teach students about entrepreneurship, including how to start their own businesses. t’s no surprise why. Today, about 54 percent of Pakistani college graduates under 25 are either unemployed or working against jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree. This is due to the uninspiring budget but it’s also because job diagnoses for college graduates differ dramatically, in contrast to their major subjects or the field of specialization.
