Pakistan has almost 5.5 million children in the 5-9 age bracket who are not in school, the second highest number in the world.

Educating everybody

Pakistan has been experiencing an education emergency for decades. For a country that aspires to create an economy that draws down the benefits of information technology and the internet, it has done remarkably little to produce a generation of children who might fill the jobs that such a move would create. With the education budget still below two per cent of the GDP, the government has decided that it too recognises that there is an education emergency and has decided to do something about it — maybe.

Extremists in education

IF the political elite is determined to eradicate extremism and terrorism in Pakistan, then its circle should be expanded not only to madressahs and seminaries but also to public sector institutions where several proscribed extremist groups of different political parties are preaching terror.

Baton-charging of children

Although bombing, shooting and slaughtering children are heinous acts of terrorism and need to be dealt with with an iron hand, baton-charging schoolgoing children seems a minor crime and harmless act in the contemporary situation of Pakistan. That is why the Punjab police have ruthlessly lashed innocent children in Lahore. One must pay tribute to ‘His Highness the Chief Minister’, who will take notice, form a committee and nobody knows what next? Let us condemn, forget and wait for another act of violence and brutal use of force by the state machinery.
