Abstract

The current technology era has provided education with a significant position to survive a society in this globalized world. However, Pakistan has made several efforts to raise the country’s education status but still struggle with low literacy due to the poor implementation of educational policies. Therefore, a critical analysis of Pakistan education policies was done to understand the root causes of poor implementation and provide suggestions to resolve the weak areas. The study identified several barriers such as excessive expectations, centralized targets, ambiguous objectives, political influence, inadequate funding and resources, lack of collaboration, scarcity of teachers’ professional development and poor supervision. In conformity with the findings, some recommendations are also proposed. It is further claimed that local needs should be taken under consideration at the time of policy formulation to prevent policy failure.
