Power Discourse and Educational Policy in Pakistan: Challenges for a Developing Society in the Era of Globalization
Talbani, Aziz
Education and Society, v29 n2-3 p21-37 2011
The article examines the ideological forces that are influencing educational policies and curriculum debates in Pakistan. In Pakistan, ideology dominates education and addressing contemporary global economic and cultural challenges are not a priority. As the result, the government of Pakistan has failed to address the economic woes of people, consequently, poverty, illiteracy, crimes have increased. These conditions have added to already worsening plight of education, which is focused on religious ideology and not on preparing students for the job market or to face changing global society.
