This brings us to an analysis of the historical perspective on education in Pakistan, which will enable us to see what all has been done till now and whether it has proven to be fruitful or not in terms of educational performance/output. While analyzing the educational sector of Pakistan, one needs to realize that there are primarily three types of schools; firstly the private (elite) institutions meant for the higher income group; secondly, the public (government) schools that cater to the lower income groups of the population and thirdly the Madrassah, which is also known as the mosque or the religious school.As far as private schools are concerned, they are more of a necessity than anything else for the current Pakistani society, primarily because the government has failed to fulfill its responsibility to provide education of good quality for its population. Sadly, a significant number of parents, including those belonging to the lower income groups, are inclined towards sending their children to more expensive, private schools in order to enable their children to become competitive with the rest, by receiving better quality education.In addition to this, budget allocation for education has always remained an issue in Pakistan It is understandable that Pakistan, being a struggling economy, has budgetary constraints but even then; its allocation for education is much lower than it should be. The Pakistani government only allocates around 3% of its total yearly budget to education. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, (UNESCO), countries that are under-developed should allocate almost 4 % of their annual GDP towards education. As an example, Chad can be quoted, which is amongst the poorest countries in the world and yet allocated close to 6% for education in its most recent budget.
