What do you think about the education crisis all around the world? One of major concerns of the world is lack of education. Like us, some children do get educated but some don’t. Some get basic education, some get secondary education………and some don’t even get education, this is what this question is about. According to build On, which is an organization that fights the education crisis and try to get rid of illiteracy and poverty tells us 57 primary school children are out of school, 49% will never attend school and 2/3 of illiterate adults are female1. This is what I think about the education crisis all around the world. Build On also tells us that worldwide at least 900 million people are illiterate, 57 million primary school age children are not even in school.49% will never attend school and 774 million adults are illiterate and 2/3 of illiterate adults are female.1 Reasons for children missing out on quality education: • Getting to school means walking long distances. • Many kids learn in dark, crumbling huts open to extreme weather. • Among not attending school there are 2x more girls than boys. • Many children in the developing world must help support their families. • High cost1
Global education first which works with unicef and wants to put every child in school info graphics tell us that the poorest children in “conflict” countries are twice as more likely to be out of school than the poorest somewhere else. It also tells us that girls are almost two and a half times more likely to be out of school if they live in a country somewhere else. It also tells us that teenage girls are almost 90% to be more likely to be out of secondary school than young women elsewhere.2This infografic tells us that there are so many illiterate children and primary school children in the world and so less graduated children.
Ungei is an organization which works to convince people to educate their children and that they work to stop the education crisis so Ungei tells us this: Violence: (girls mostly) can include • Bullying • Corporal punishment • Girl’s rights And Ungei also tells: What can be done? • “Promote gender equality and non-violence in teaching practice.” • “Strengthens links between schools and homes.” • “Tell the teachers and the public to create solutions”3 This infografic tells us about the percentage of literate and illiterate female and male. UNESCO tells us that “Teachers are the most important factor in learning but overcrowded classes and a lack of relevant materials can also defeat the goal of making every child educated”.4 YouTube which is a video sharing website tells us this: Causes of crisis in education: • Poverty • Disability • Geographic location • Discrimination Why should we fight for education? • Education is a human right • “It’s a strong reactant for social progress” • “Improves environmental sustainability"11 This infografic tells us about the children of school age and the children out of school.
Mercury.ethz.ch which is a website which gives us access to read useful pdf’s tells us the Crisis in South Sudan: In south Sudan fewer than 200 of the 1600 schools in south Sudan have permanent buildings. Most classrooms only have a board and a chalk.5
Education in crisis is an organization which pushes itself to give education to all tells us the Crisis in Nepal: In Nepal the reason of children not educated is that there is an increase of teachers which is good but because of that classrooms are too large and because of that children don’t get much attention and then the parents think that because of this their children shouldn’t go to school simply and help their parents with house work.6This infografic tells us the not attendance rate percentage UNICEF tells us the Crisis in Niger: Niger is one of the countries which is affected by the food crisis which affects in the education crisis. In Niger nearly 5.5 million people, whose half are children, don’t have the right to eat food. The literacy rate for Niger is 19.1%!!!!7 UNICEF tells us the Crisis in Mali: In Mali there is a lot of confusion for the education of 700,000 children in Mali. There are almost 200,000 children with no access to school. The Literacy rate for Mali is 38.7%.8 UNICEF tells us the Crisis in Central African Republic: About 65 percent of schools were looted, damaged by bullets and Because of that almost 280,000 primary school children dropped out of School. In Bangui there is serious threats on schools. The literacy rate of the Central African Republic is 36.8%.9 National perspective: Dawn which is a Pakistani newspaper tells us that Pakistan has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world, especially for women. Girls in the rural areas face man problems. The main problem from all problems is education. Over the years, Pakistan has focused on defense a lot but it has not focused on the education sector which is the most important. Our constitution says: “The state of Pakistan shall remove literacy and provide free and compulsory secondary education with in the minimum possible period.” But this goal has not been properly accomplished. This infografic tells us the literacy in Pakistan which includes total literacy, male literacy, and female literacy. The human development report places Pakistan at the 136 position or just 49.90 PC of its population is education. The education rate in Pakistan is 33.80 PC for females and 47.18 PC for males. This shows that people in the 6th largest populated country do not give much attention to education.10 Alif aliaan which is an organization which has been working for education in Pakistan since 2003 tells us that In Pakistan, of those children who do go to school, the majority of them receive an education of poor quality. In Pakistan, the main reason of children not going to school is budget. For some families funds that are available are not spent effectively.11This infografic tells us the literacy among people aged 15 and above. And more is for men. How can this problem get worse? Benefits of education and training which has opened up a university tells us that If the education crisis gets worse then there would be lesser job opportunities which would lead to lesser people getting employed and that would result in businesses closing down.12 If the education crisis gets worse then if people don’t get educated, there won’t be good governors/politicians and because of that, the whole world will be a very big war and it’ll be very hard to live a happy life. If children don’t get educated then when they grow up and they will not be educated then more terrorists etc. will come to the nation and kill all the people and the people won't know what to do when they come so they will just die and affect the public. Solutions YouTube tells us that Over the years there should be basic education for all and the government needs to start focusing on funds for poor people so they can start educating their children.14 YouTube tells us that We need to make educational programs online so that kids everywhere can go online to learn for a very cheap price and get a good education.13 We’ll have to paste posters everywhere and tell the public to work more hard and fight for children’s education.
The way I think is that the world won’t be fixed from the education crisis even if we go according to these solutions. Yes, some parts of the world could be fixed but there’s not that much chance. I think we should be more focused on education, for the growth of our country/Pakistan and not just Pakistan, the whole wide world should focus on educating people, either there poor or rich. My point of view is also that our nation should not get so focused on defense – I mean yes they should of course but get more focused on education. Because if they don’t then they there won't be people who import defenses and people who participate in the army.
