Pakistan;Swat: Education in Society
Education is very important for an individual's success in life. Education provides pupils teaching skills that prepare them physically, mentally and socially for the world of work in later life. Education is generally seen as the foundation of society which brings economic wealth, social prosperity and political stability. Higher education helps in maintaining a healthy society which prepares health care professionals, educated health care consumers and maintaining healthy population. Education is major aspect of development of any modern society since if there is a deficit of educated people then society will stops its further progress. Government should pay serious attention to education and support it economically and morally all over the country.
This old saying of ‘invest in rubies so that you earn profit in diamonds ‘might be one very correct formula for our Pakistani government to think about investing in education so that we see a substantial future.
Education in Pakistan could be seen as the foremost factor deciphering the fate of 160 million people in our country. Yet we are victims to the lowest literacy rate, lower education standards and lower growth that our country has witnessed during the last 60 years .The society as a whole is suffering due to lack of education .Narrow mindedness and intolerance prevails on a large scale. Our society has deteriorated its values, norms and culture just due to lack of awareness on many issues and areas; the main reason being lack of education.At the grass root level we even see that many menaces of the society are inborn due to lack of education ; one such problem is that of child labor which prevails widely and children which need to be going to school end up earning livelihood for their family at a very early age.
