The expectations of education in Pakistan are extremely low. The training sector has altered to an industry where people are making an investment money to earn rewarding profits. Nobody can be involved about the quality of education provided to the students. There are two parallel systems of education operating in Pakistan i. e. private universities systems and authorities schools system. Way too many Government schools have been ravaged by ongoing financial troubles which undermine the provision of educational services. Unpredictable employment conditions of teachers, decaying complexes and facilities that no more meet educational needs, and an array of social issues that overwhelm school workers, are are just some of major issues confronting Government schools.
There is also growing general population concern over the poor quality of education and widespread perception that expectations of government classes have dropped to lowest and this public universities are failing to meet up with the intellectual needs of students. Federal institutions system is in worst condition now. There are plenty of ghost colleges in country and in other classes the grade of education is very low. Other system is private schools, during the last 15 years; small private universities have mushroomed in all big and small towns of Pakistan with no regulatory body.
Private institutions in Pakistan are slightly better than Government academic institutions in many aspects but they are expensive and also have other disadvantages. Their standard of education is also declining very speedily. The folks who make the plans and run the institutions, are not sure of school administration, almost all may not even understand the difference between curriculum and syllabus, if such people run the institution or hire educators one can visualize what the consequences would be. Reason is that many of the shareholders and university owners are businessman without the educational background. It is also a subject of concern that the majority of classes even the set up ones, do not offer fair pay to their teachers; what to say about other benefits such as pension or medical facilities to the teaching personnel. Working conditions of the instructors in private classes are worst.
Many parents consider only some factors before admitting their children in private classes i. e. institution should be close to home and there must be many students in the school plus they never try to check the infrastructure and quality of coaching in private college. These schools retain girls as instructors by paying them some pocket money.
In developed countries administration maintains strong check on private schools to ensure the quality education but within Pakistan there is absolutely no check and balance and consequently the typical of education in Pakistan is declining daily. The decision of Pakistan Government to privatize government colleges will prove disastrous because it will make education very expensive for the indegent who are already fighting with massive inflation. Matching to a credible article the present degree of colleges fees Rs. 17000/- per time will shoot up to Rs. 120000/- per 12 months, rendering the poor people heading towards dark eras.
There are huge irregularities in the appointments of lecturers, assistant professors, and other officers of colleges. Associate professors and other officers are appointed without proper treatment and without touching merit and through favoritism or bribery. Even the renowned colleges of country are packed with problem and favoritism. Such incompetent individuals aren't only in charge of the deteriorating situation of education in country but also priced at an incredible number of rupees in form of the gives and privileges. Pakistan is not the first country to decide for privatization of education.
In various other expanding countries, privatization has recently reduced access to education and brought down quality; they are simply facing devastating results. Instead of eliminating this essential sector the federal government should overhaul the prevailing system by spending maximum portion of budget and should immediately withdraw the Model university or college ordinance. The Government should remember universites and colleges are: A Building with Four Walls and Tomorrow Inside.
Purpose of this research:
Higher education is becoming impossible for a middle class families residing in Pakistan. In our country degrees are available on the name of money. Starting of private universities has paved the best way to degree retailers who are charging high prices on the name of education. These private universities are not for all those classes they are simply just for a specific segment of men and women who are able these expensive fees. Private colleges benefit from the monopoly on the market and there are so many companies who employ the service of the students of few colleges who state themselves as best on the basis of high price.
Pakistan is blessed with ability and just because education is so expensive for most, they cannot live up to their potential. Students studying in most private universities think that these are more elite than the rest and perhaps they are simply because Allah has given the resources to these students in order to study in these colleges easily and never have to worry about the amount of money.
Just take my cousins example, who applied and cleared the test of Szabist but anticipated to insufficient resources he just could not manage to pay the exorbitant amount. Presently he is their studies at Quaid-e-Azam School in Islamabad.
Here I am talking about Szabist that was founded by Past Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. It is one of the best universities in our city and most the students desire for it. Sadly my cousin is not the only person who encountered such a predicament there are extremely few students who are able these universities because they're only for well to do people rather than for the man. That is because of the rising class variations in our modern culture which is becoming a cause of dividing individuals in line with the status.
A federal government education from this country is hardly going to get a person any place in life. Only universities like Karachi University offer good education in the town that can help a person to achieve success in his career. Graduates from colleges like Dawood College or Mehran college or university have a tough road ahead of them. They face serious class discrimination in the form of not being decided on for various jobs, or that their education level is merely different then that of an exclusive graduate. Also in the study that we conducted many of people agreed that graduates from federal universities are looked down upon by society. How depressing it is that we live in such a modern culture.
In my opinion before thinking for the College or university of your decision you first make a point that whether you can afford it or not otherwise you will be really disappointed by witnessing the class difference inside our education system. God knows when it will be eradicated but the way our country is being lead the category discrimination will only become more robust. Our faith condemns such acts, but we as Muslims still refuse to change our habits.
At least differences should be taken out from the training system in case this thing cannot be happen than authorities universities should be opened up which provide the latest education at affordable price but our federal government will not heading to get rid of the distinctions because they do not want equality in Pakistan.
The way for sampling participants for this research is "random sampling", our concentrate on was to complete at least 100 questionnaires from three different types of educational establishments. so we chosen Karachi University or college, Institute of Business Management (IoBM) and Szabist.
Our purpose was to employ a measure that would be precise, successful, reliable, less time consuming, valid, representative and easily grasped by the individuals. For this function we used questionnaires as our setting to gather information and along with this we interviewed a couple of participant, where it was noticed required.
Along with this we required further support from the supplementary data which we compiled from the internet to conclude are results.
Each participant was given 5 to ten minutes to complete the group of questions directed at them. They were explained the guidelines and were assured that their individuality would not be disclose. After the participants verified their determination to load the questionnaires the first key of instructions given to them was to learn the consent form and place their signature in the bottom of the web page after which they proceeded on the questions. Once all the questionnaires were filled up by different individuals we saved our ends up with tables and we have displayed them in pie graph and other diagram for better understanding.
From our figures records we could actually deduce that majority of our participants claim that privatization of education is influencing a great deal inside our life, we tend to discriminate people on the basis of education they get from different institute (public and private) and its effect on their thinking, skills and living standard and job opportunities are leading to status space in the society.
Questionnaire and their results
What is your age?
Our survey included students from the many age groups, and the majority of those who helped us with our study were 25 years and above.
2) Are you currently studying/studied in an exclusive or a federal educational institute?
Although a great deal of students studying in privately had universities done our questionnaire, we had a a number of of these from government institutions as well who volunteered to take the survey.
3) Do you think privatization of education has resulted in school discrimination in Pakistan?
Majority of those who helped us in our survey arranged that privatization of education has certainly resulted in class discrimination in Pakistan.
4) Do people studying in private organizations feel more elite/powerful?
Most people arranged with the fact that studying in private establishments does make people feel a little more elite than those who are studying in administration owned institutions.
5) Do graduates from non-private organizations find it relatively harder to get careers?
The majority of individuals decided that graduates from federal owned institutions think it is very difficult to find careers. This is either as a result of fact that they have not been trained by the best instructors which private colleges are able, or even sometimes in the eye of the interviewer a graduate from a private university is known as much more appropriate.
6) Are students from authorities institutions viewed down after by modern culture?
Majority of folks again decided that students from authorities institutions are looked down after by the society. Just because these folks cannot afford to really have the same education as us, will not make them inferior in any way. Sadly our society may also be quite shallow when it comes to judging people.
7) Have you ever observed/been a part of an event where non-private graduates were discriminated against?
Most people say that they have never seen or been a part of an occurrence where students from government organizations were discriminated against. Sadly these things happen very subtly and usually people do not commit such works in the existence of a audience.
8) Have you got any friends from administration educational institutes?
A lot of those who helped us inside our survey seem to get friends studying in government possessed institutions. This demonstrates all anticipation is not lifeless, as people do not mind interacting with these folks.
9) If education is nationalized, would our country be in a far greater state?
Most people are up for the thought of nationalizing education. That is due to the fact that identical opportunities will be given to folks of all classes, and the ones who sometimes cannot achieve their true potential because of studying in one third grade government education institution, won't be the sufferer of category discrimination.
10) Will people studying in private companies always have an advantage in life over those from authorities institutions?
Now there are a lot of differing opinions here. Some people think that just because a person is from a private institution, that does not mean he will have an advantage over those studying in government establishments. This is probably as a result of fact that we now have still some excellent government universities kept in Pakistan like the Karachi School which gives an opportunity to those who cannot afford to pay the fees of private organizations.
We can handle this problem if you take the following steps:
By raising the amount of education in authorities institutions.
By hiring good faculty in government institutions.
By providing identical job opportunities to graduates of federal government universities.
Government institutions should take up a curriculum which complements with the typical of private companies' curriculum.
A lot of individuals advised nationalizing education in the country so that identical chances are directed at folks of all classes.
Above activities are advised for solving the challenge caused by the difference in education systems.
Our findings indicates that most the students think that education in administration companies is of lower level as compare compared to that in private establishments. This difference of education system is causing discrimination inside our world which if not manipulated right now, may have very far reaching results on our people and culture. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT of Pakistan needs to act swiftly to ensure that this evil is completely eradicated from its root base so that folks of all classes get the same chance at doing whatever they would like to in life.
