We have heard enough about the problems of out of school children, about the children that drop out after primary level education and about people who can’t afford education. Today, we will talk about the other half of the equation.

Investing in technology by Dr. Atta ur Rehman

Knowledge is now the single most important factor for socio-economic development. Countries that have realized this and have invested heavily in developing their human resources to the highest possible levels have leaped forward, leaving others far behind.  Finland has a population about one-fourth of that of Karachi, however, just one company from this country has exports twice those of Pakistan’s entire exports. Malaysia decided 30 years ago to spend at least 25 percent of its budget on education, which it has been doing for the last 30 years, assigning its education sector the highest priority.

Another attempt 

According to figures given out by the Interior Minister, three million students are enrolled at 18,000 seminaries across the country – making seminaries a huge part of our education system. To effectively counter them, in the longer term, a policy is needed to resurrect the public school system and make it a viable option for parents. Decision-making on the status of seminaries in the overall education system is also an urgent need so as to curb illegal activities at these institutions.
