Education is the systematic
process of instruction for the development of character or mental powers. The
primary stage of education is of prime importance for the edifice of career.
Soundness and tidiness of this stage enable a child to raise a standard of his
personality. Unfortunately the importance of this stage is ignored to a large
extent in our country. The drawbacks are multifarious in nature and require
considerations on the part of the responsible. They have just followed the same
principle of making policies in closed rooms and draft curriculum which was
followed in the colonial era. Even now a days in our country, both the public
sector and private sector have the capacity to publish books yet not according
to the psychological level of the subject. They have borrowed ideas from
elsewhere in the world and feel proud to present it in seminars and workshops.
The parents of today are also responsible to a greater extinct as they are not
questioning the effects of these curriculum. They just pushing their young ones
and finally opt for tuitions, which is not the right solution. The amount they
spend on borrowing ideas and then its practical implantation will be in my
opinion far more less than the amount required for the research to know the
psychology of the subject (Pakistani Children). Then another drawback of our
primary education system is that of different school system for varied classes
of the society....again following the agenda of the colonial rulers, empowering
a particular section of the society, typically known as the feudal lords, to run
the affairs of the state and to be easily affected by the name of modernism,
enlighten moderation etc. Another drawback the teachers are also following the
typical trait of punishing the students harshly.. re-think mr.teacher. Schools'
authorities in the private sector are also highly responsible for the poor
status of primary education system in our country. They have interests in
building of the students but to earn more and more money even they are also not
highly qualified, They have the money they are the managers, leaders,
administrators having a single agenda...Boss is always right. The government
should channelise and monitor the schools in private sector.
Being a Pakistani I request all the readers particularly the parents to question
the rulers regarding this very sensitive issue.
