Relevant and Integrative Education

Education in Pakistan has hardly any relevance to the life and experience of the learners be it formal or non-formal education. Not only the content has little relevance but the method and teaching techniques employed in teaching are also farther from the ways and the styles of learning the children come with to schools. Right from day one, they are required to forget and unlearn what they have already learnt. They are subjected to compartmentalization of knowledge and learning which they are not used to. Before coming to school, their learning is all integrated with a clear social, cultural, geographical and economic context. They learn a language (and in many cases more than one language), learn to do basic calculations, learn about family, friends and other relationships, get trained in personal hygiene, follow rules while playing and experience a lot of science around them simultaneously without segmenting their learning into mutually exclusive parts.
