An educated prosperous Pakistan, a dream shared by millions of Pakistani's across the globe. But with the nation deeply seeped in poverty and inequalities spread unevenly throughout, this dream has become increasingly difficult to achieve. Access to quality education can become a great equalizer and create opportunities for all people regardless of their socio-economic background. Pakistan's educational landscape is dotted with numerous schools. Whether public or private, these are widespread from the metropolitan urban hubs of Lahore and Karachi to the rural villages of Attock and Badin. For many, these schools are seen as the road to change and a better future. But unfortunately some of these help in widening the disparity gap even further. With no check on operations, children are denied a proper education that can help them survive in the world and open doors for a bigger and brighter future.
With an abundance of medium to low-cost schools in Pakistan, are they providing the education they aspire to teach? To maximize the potential of these schools, it is important for us to act now and make them the engines of growth that will improve lives of children across the nation.
