PAKISTAN IS LOWEST IN EDUCATION RANKING OF MOST OF THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD AND IS AT NO.113 OUT 120 NATIONS. THEREFORE, EDUCATION IS VERY ESSENTIAL ELEMENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY OR NATION. ITS OVERALL LITERACY RATE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE IS 56% FROM ALL OF RURAL AND URBAN POPULATION. IT HAS FIVE PROVINCES WHICH HAVE DIFFERENT GEOGRAPHIC AND DEMOGRAPHIC STRUCTURES. URBAN AREAS ARE MORE EDUCATED AND DEVELOPED THAN RURAL AREAS IN BOTH TERMS. IT HAS ALSO ONE CAPITAL TERRITORY NAMELY ISLAMABAD WHICH ALSO THE CAPITAL OF THE COUNTRY AND AN INDEPENDENT STATE AZAD JAMU KASHMIR. BOTH THESE TERRITORIES HAVE MORE LITERACY RATE ITSELF.

AS FOR AS THE SYSTEM OF EDUCATION IN PAKISTAN IS CONCERNED, IT IS DIVIDED INTO VARIOUS CATEGORIES, LIKEWISE ISLAMIC AND NON-ISLAMIC EDUCATION. THE ISLAMIC EDUCATION IS ABOUT LEARNING QURAN AND SUNNAH OF THE HOLY PROPHET(PBUH). IN THIS SYSTEMS MASAJID AND MADDARIS PLAY THE ROLE OF CONVENTIONAL SCHOOL SYSTEM. WHEREAS, NON-ISLAMIC EDUCATION IS FURTHER DIVIDED INTO LOCAL EDUCATION AND FOREIGN EDUCATION SYSTEM. BOTH SYSTEMS ARE PARALLEL BUT THEY DIVIDE EDUCATION INTO TWO GROUPS, EDUCATION FOR POOR AND RICH. THE LOCAL EDUCATION IS ALSO DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN CATEGORY FORMAL AND VOCATIONAL WHICH THOUGHT IN GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES.

DUE TO NEW GOVERNMENT IN KPK, EDUCATION HAS BEEN GIVEN SPECIAL ATTENTION. THE LITERACY RATE IS DIFFERENT IN DIFFERENT PROVINCES AND TERRITORIES.
