The problems of our education systemAn educational system contain all the institutions that provide prescribed education, it includes all government, private, profit and social welfare organization, and their rules and regulations, staff, administration, students, instructors and funds. If a country want to lead the world communally and efficiently, it must have a powerful system of education. Effective education system leads to the growth of a country. Unfortunately Pakistan is one of those few countries where the quality of educational is continuously declining. This situation is getting worse as the years passing, and the current situation is so bad that our educational system is very close to destruction. Due to the poor system of education, our country can’t attain its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of education. The goals are achieving Universal Primary Education, gender equality and empowering women.
Our students face so many problems throughout their educational course that we might consider them as most unguided students in the world. The lack of interest of parents and deficiency of professionalism in teachers is the reason that both unable to lead the students. The deficiency of guidance is very serious crisis that our students are facing. In our country inexperienced teachers teach children in early classes and can’t provoke interest of education. In this way the idea of early education comes to failure. The capabilities of students are affected by the lack of supervision and high expectations by their families.
A very serious dilemma of our educational system is that in any institution, a student is not judged by its own capabilities but on the ground of societal status. As a result, the students with poor economic or social background are discouraged. On the other side, our examination system does not assess the students on the base of their intellectual skills but focus on the rote remembrance test. These situations are all result of not applying the up to date evaluation system. Due to the ignorance of staff and school administration, the students of very initial classes get indulge in very unhealthy activities like cigarette smoking and bullying other children.
Here it is to mention that it is a fact, if we want our students to give excellent results, first we have to improve our system of education. The improvement of educational system should be started both on institutional level, where experienced and active staff and teachers should be hired, and on governmental level, where better policies should be made and applying them on institutions. Training organizations and workshops are highly needed for teachers and parents so they may better guide the students.
The career counseling should also be promoted. These are the basic ways to train teachers and make parents aware of the performances of their children and also build up a relation between students, parents and teachers. In this way the teachers and parents better understand the uprising problems of students and then able to overcome them. Communication gap between teachers, students and parents would be narrowed and the problems of students will be avoided.
