Who wants public education system anyway? By Irfan Muzaffar

Let us assess if anyone genuinely wants a public education system in Pakistan and also briefly ponder over implications of our assessment. We can begin by assuming that state is the primary agency through which the society expresses its stake and aspirations for public education. The assumption is that if the society wants an effective system of public education, then the state, if it actually represents the will of the people, should honour it by organising a public education system.

Early unions by Nadia Agha

The practice of child marriage in Pakistan has been an ongoing one in the rural areas, adversely affecting the education and health of girls.

On the cult of the A by Mina Malik Hussain

The O level results are out (or the CIE or the GCSEs, the name keeps changing and I am obviously an old fogey now and can’t keep track), and with it its attendant despair and joy. It’s such a fraught process—you spend three years preparing for the exams, and about a month finally sitting them, and your collegiate future is largely dependent on how well you did on them. The O level is also the first huge examination that you attempt.  Outside of an academic environment you need much more than book smarts, and by limiting your child to only academics you are automatically excluding them from other aspects of education that they need to be successful in the real world.

Pedophilia: an obfuscated reality by Zainab Sohail

Beside protests and condemnations against this pedophilia, the most important thing is to eradicate this evil from the society. Can sexual education contribute to eradicate it? According to WHO sex education should be imparted to the children who are 12 years and above, so that individuals are well informed about sex, sexual practices, child sexual abuse and sexually transmitted diseases ete. Advantages of sex education are that sex education dispels myths related to sex and broadens their horizons; children can easily understand bodily changes at the age of puberty. Sex education will curb sexual abuse as children will be better able to distinguish between predatory sexual practices.
