Pakistani Education and FIASCo

all about pakistan education, pakistani education is not so standered and its need some progressive policies to make it stablize, for that reason pakistani students are moving to abroad for study

Pakistan fiasco, education has benchmarks and watersheds: i) The nationalization of the night in private schools in 1972, (ii) the short-term experiment and ill-conceived to redesign the entire primary education system initiated by Air Marshall Nur Khan, who gained and lost the confidence of ZA Bhutto, with supersonic speed, (iii) the emergence of a new type of private schools during the Zia era that undermined all social and cultural values ​​of the education system had been encouraging so far, iv) the stagnation of the years from 1990 to 1999, during which education became a commercial business, and (v) the appearance of the Command-CEO and his chosen people, who imposed his vision education in the country during 2000-2008.

The Command-CEO of the year between the years 1999 to 2008 saw the largest state investment in higher education since 1947.

This was done primarily through the creation of the Commission on Higher Education in October 2002, by an act signed by the military dictator who had taken up writing about the country through a stroke of midnight. Just a laudable principle for a commission on higher education, it seems. But the most important aspect of this fiasco was the long shadow of September 11, 2001, and the immediate surrender of the sovereignty of Pakistan by the Command-CEO. This shadow loomed large in everything he did, and the HEC was no exception.

From the beginning, there was a servile mentality that accepted the superiority of all that came from foreign sources. In many respects, was funded by foreign money with a lot of pomp and ceremony. There was almost nothing Indian in full configuration, including the working group recommends the establishment of the HEC was largely financed by foreign sources, and what is recommended is based on a foreign model. The recommendation of the task force said: "A central body is needed to facilitate quality assurance in higher education, both public and private sectors, and linking funding by the federal government for public universities quality of performance (similar to the principle used by the Board of Higher Education Financing in the United Kingdom). "(emphasis added).

Consider the uncritical importation, wholesale from a model that had little relevance to Pakistan. What the HEC set apart from its predecessor, the University Grants Commission (UGC), was this strangeness, this hypertext, imported from the colonial masters had their own objectives which establish an educational system that produces low levels of his paintings administration system. The UGC, disorganized, almost dysfunctional as it was, was at least a consequence of local educational structures and the environment, the HEC was a great body, which ran on the will of a few chosen confidants Command, who rolled ingots rupees of foreign currency in the company inadequate. The result: a lot of pomp, self-projection, ad hoc decisions, false zero-sum schemes that universities were created overnight on paper, and some infrastructure development, which could have been achieved in the fraction of the cost. More importantly, he did what he wanted foreign donors: deviated from the cream of this country in their hands as slave labor.

This is an aspect of the HEC rarely speaks, in fact, the HEC has a lot of credit for sending thousands of young Pakistani students to foreign universities with scholarships, and each time we recite the numbers, everyone claps: Bravo. Well done. No one, or interested in doing the following question: why? What these young men and women do when and if they return home from this great show sponsored by the State, to a country where 60 million children can not read or write and outage makes it impossible to have a laboratory-sized!

There was nobody, and nobody was interested in seeing the harsh realities of this earth, through the fog of pomp and a maze of statistical uncertainties to fully understand the extent of the failure of education in Pakistan. All the HEC made during the announcement of General special rule on this earth was the act to a feverish speed to produce a systemic failure that has flourished.

This failure was evident in the way HEC operates under the direct command of a person who had the ear of General in scope through the sweet talk and hyperbole. It is true that the HEC achieved some success in developing the basic infrastructure of the information age in various universities. However, given the amount of money at his disposal, including a private medium-sized IT company could have done that in a fraction of the cost. It does not require a genius to purchase and install videoconferencing equipment and digital libraries, which are now increasingly available on the Internet without charge.

Those who created this fiasco last no more than run the HEC, but these "achievements", written in golden letters in the records of HEC, remain high on the HEC website. But the irony is that this self-adulation glamorisation use a Professor Wolfgang Voelter or professor Fred M. Hayward or Professor Michael Rode to tell this nation of illiterates half the years 2002-2008 were "golden period of Pakistan in higher education"! With heavyweights contained in any part of the educational scene in their countries of origin, no one will ask why these people are saying that we have suddenly achieved the impossible? How can they make these claims in height when not even know that 60 million children of this nation could have been taken off the streets with half the money spent on the HEC during these years? They have no idea of ​​the dilemmas inherent in Pakistan social, economic and educational, or understand or care about our urgent needs in this crucial area of ​​national life. But then, neither do those who have robbed this country of the years of development opportunities and joining hands with a military dictator Pharaonic character, who knew everything, I could do anything, that wisdom embodied
