Pakistan, 15 NOv

More than 22 million children are still out of school in  Pakistan  A new report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) has revealed that nearly 22.5 million Pakistani children are out of school, of which majority are girls, local media reported on Wednesday.

 The report said that as many as 32 percent girls between the ages of five and 11 are out of school in the country, compared to 21 percent of boys.

Under investment in schools, prohibitive school fees and related costs, corporal punishment, insecurity, attacks on educational institutes, and a failure to enforce compulsory education were the reasons of low enrollment rates in Pakistan, a country with a population of just over 200 million, according to the report.

Earlier last week, the ruling party leader and governor of eastern Punjab province Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that around 22 million out of school children in Pakistan would be enrolled and quality education services would be ensured as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party is committed to revamping the education system in the country.

“The youths will play a pivotal role in bringing the economic revolution,” he said, adding that the educational institutions must play effective role in improving standards of education.
