Pakistan Failed To Achieve Education Targets Of 2015

ISLAMABAD: According to the facts and numbers of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), 54 million Pakistani children are not going to school and those who go a small number of them could reach to the tenth grade.

The report of UNESCO about education in Pakistan, also states that by the end of this year, the admissions of girls and boys in primary schools in Pakistan are likely to improve.

However Pakistan has failed to achieve educational goals of 2015.

UNESCO is publishing it educational reports with the title of ‘Education for All’ from the last 15 years.

The report said that in South Asia, India, Iran, and Nepal have shown particular progress in this regard, however, a large number of children leave school and the quality of education is also poor.

In 2014, according to the report, 33 percent children of fifth grade in the Baluchistan province could read stories in Urdu and local languages whereas, in the Punjab province this number was 63 percent.

There is also a clear gender bias in textbooks which has several reasons. “The institutions of curriculum publishing and reform resist against eliminating this bias, while reform also do not receive any political priority, nor is supported by the public” says report.

The report, through the help of the official statistics, also questioned about educational standers and also distinction between different regions.

UNESCO in the year 2000, to improve education in the world, set 5 targets for year 2015. These targets include: children enrollments in school, to reduce the adult illiteracy rate and equal proportion of boys and girls at secondary education level.

UNESCO says that Pakistan is far behind to achieve all these goals. However, 80% primary school enrollment in Pakistan is a good indicator and soon Pakistan will achieve the equality in the number of boys and girls in primary schools in Pakistan.
