‘Thanks to Allah’

‘Thanks to Allah’, as our cricketers would say, “Just 40.1 per cent of the 5-16 age group [schoolchildren in Pakistan] could do two-digit subtraction sums (with carry) whereas a mere 23.6 per cent were able to do three-digit division sums. Only 41.8 per cent could read a sentence in Urdu or their mother tongue (English is a far cry). Far fewer could read a story,” revealed the nuclear physicist Dr Pervez Hoodbhoy in his column yesterday, quoting the recently released Annual Status of Education Report.

Making the Case for Quality Education for All in Pakistan

Pakistan is slowly getting serious about education, and not before time. The country faces significant challenges; huge disparities in education opportunities—particularly for the rural poor and girls—poor quality education, low enrollment and completion rates, high drop-out rates and low levels of transition to secondary education. The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER), a citizen-led household survey about learning outcomes, focusing not simply on whether children are going to schools but also what they are learning, is helping this change of outlook. Now in its third year, the report seeks to fill a gap in educational data by providing reliable, comprehensive and digestible data at a national level on the status of education of 3 to 16 year olds.
