The Importance of Education

Policy plays a pivotal role in addressing issues, raising voices, and, implementing different bills, however, we’ve seen how certain policies fail to work and achieve their objective of protecting human beings.

Good and quality education is a fundamental right for every human. But unfortunately, many students in the world, especially in Pakistan, are not getting the same quality of education as the rest of the world. I am living in an area where there are almost 5 secondary-level Governmental Schools that unfortunately do not offer quality education as compared to private schools. It is mostly because the government education system still follows obsolete procedures, weak governance, and less qualified teachers. As a result, the students of government schools still lack the contemporary skills of learning. 

Policymakers must have the ability, skills, and efficiency to make policies that help each person flourish holistically.

As Martin Luther King, Jr. said “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – That is the goal of true education”. Therefore, to enhance and reform the overall education system in the world, there is a need to eliminate the huge gap between the distinguished systems among the societies, and hence, this policy would have played an important role to fill in that required gap.

On the whole, in creating better policies for education, policy makers should consider the inherent dignity and potential of all humans, and assure that every society is in peace, harmony, and prosperity. These are the priorities for every policy maker.
