As majority of Pakistanis are deprived of their very basic right to education they never truly become independent and are exploited and influenced by those who are cunning enough to do so. Lack of education has also creates a great disparities in the social classes. Corruption, feudalism, living on loans etc are some of the problems that arise as a result of poor education or no education. People fail to elect the right public representatives and end up losing whatever they have. In order for this dismal state of affairs to change, it is mandatory that the education budget be raised to the point where we can finally educate everyone.
