COMMERCIALIZATION OF EDUCATION IN PAKISTAN

Educated, skilled and hard working people are the biggest and invaluable asset of any country and Pakistan too is not an exception. The countries, which have attained the status of developed economies, have been investing heavily in education and skill development. For decades the literacy level in Pakistan had remained low due to 1) absence of quality educational institutions, 2) poor curriculum, 3) use of text books written in an alien language, 4) inadequate training under trainers program and 5) separate system of education for elite and commoners. In the absence of adequate number of public schools parents have been forced to send their children to private schools, charging exorbitant fees.


  EXCLUSIVE WITH DR TARIQ HASAN

Chairman Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) Dr Tariq Hasan has said that March-like crisis at stock market would not be repeated again.
He said that the SECP has put in place a number of measures to stabilise the stock market, eliminate market abuse and give protection to investors, especially small ones.
In an interview, the SECP Chairman said that the stock market is gradually inching forward due to better corporate profitability, continued strong growth in the national economy and measures taken by the SECP to stabilise market. He also said the commission is shortly initiating a full-fledged move against white-collar crimes at capital market.
