Issues in Educational Sector
Education is the basic process of learning anything. A person is in the process of getting education since his/her birth. From a toddler to a grown person, everyone is learning either it is a behavior or Islamic education or some sort of scientific knowledge. Moving towards the scope of educational sector in Pakistan. As we all know that Pakistan was came into existence on the ideology of Muslim Nationalism.
In which the religion Islam was the main factor. As we all know that in Islam education has gain a great importance. Our Prophet (PBUH) make it mandatory for every man and woman to get education. In one of His (PBUH) Hadith, He (PBUH) said that everyone should get knowledge though he/she has to travel to China. We can interpret the importance of education from the Hadith that at that time when there was no modern modes of transportation our Prophet (PBUH) mentioned China, though it was far away from Arab.
Coming back towards Pakistan, as it is an Islamic country so education is very mandatory from its ideological point of view but talking about a nation we should all know that education is of great importance for a developing nation.
Educational sector in developed countries
If we see the developed nations like America, Europe, etc. we will find out that they have a great literacy rate and they pay a great importance towards the education. Though education is a very vast topic we will specify our study to the educational sectors that includes public and private institutes including the educational governing bodies and all the political involvements in this sector.
The education system of Pakistan is surrounded by number of educational problems and there are no practical steps are seen in order to rectify the problems. Educational sector includes all the public and private institutes that includes the schools, colleges, universities and the research sectors.
There is a proper education department both for the provincial sector and for the federal sector. The ministers of provinces and federal are present who are responsible for the governing policies regarding educational sector, which are done by the help of their cabinets who are highly competent personalities some of them includes the civil servants.
Covid 19 affect Education
The Corona pandemic make a loss in the Education sector. All the studies have been compromised. Students are not aware of their future in the meantime the Punjab Government also drop a bomb on the publishing companies around the Pakistan by processing the idea of single book curriculum.
All the publishing companies have been compromised and there is a great loss in their business. Schools are not ready to pay the publishers for their books as they are also looking for the final verdict of Punjab Government.
All the Urdu Bazar and publishing joints are under serious concern and pressure as this will destroy their business. HEC is trying to make an effort towards the publishing houses by making them register their books to them and HEC will proof read the content by themselves if they find the content good they approve the publishing houses for their books. It has been seen that Punjab Government should have considerate talks with the owners o publishing houses and will help the publishers with good compensation of ideas.
