Education Situation in Pakistan

It is a good step while comparing it to ghost schools established in the country through which national funds are wasted in salaries of their teachers. But these IT labs can deliver only in the presence of capable teachers.

Currently, only 3% of Pakistan’s budget is allocated for education which is far less than international standards. It should be remembered that progress of the nation is impossible without standard education for more funds and seriousness are required.
