Based on statistical data, it is a fact that Pakistan's literacy rate is one of the lowest in the world, and this is an area of concern. It's saddening to hear that an estimated 22.6 million children are not going to school, and the literacy rate is only 58 per cent. The situation is even worse for disadvantaged youngsters who face significant difficulties in going to school. Improving the education system should be our top priority to empower our children with better opportunities to learn and grow. Every child deserves access to education, and we must do all that we can to make it a reality. Education plays a fundamental role in the political, social, and economic advancement of any country. It is a crucial aspect that cannot be overlooked. A strong and effective educational system is essential for a nation to achieve its goals. Pakistan, despite being a developing state, has valiantly tackled significant educational challenges since its inception. These issues have impeded the country's progress towards achieving its national goals. To overcome these obstacles, Pakistan must prioritize education by implementing effective policies, increasing funding, and improving access to quality education. Addressing these challenges will not only enhance the country's human capital but also promote sustainable economic growth and development. Several factors are contributing to this situation, and it is crucial to identify and address these problems. The objective of this study is to delve into the critical challenges that have long plagued the education system in Pakistan, to provide feasible solutions to overcome these obstacles. Through an extensive analysis of the prevailing issues, this study aims to identify the underlying causes of the inefficiencies within the education system and suggest practical measures to address these concerns. The ultimate goal is to establish a framework that can help improve the quality of education in Pakistan, thereby contributing to the development of a knowledgeable and skilled workforce.
