Complementing this Mission, the vision for the education sector is as follows:
• Provide quality education enabling all citizens to reach their maximum potential;
• Produce responsible and skilled citizens;
• Integrate Pakistan into the global framework of human centred economic development.
The National Education System should be meaningful and relevant in order to alleviate poverty and
sustain growth through the provision of quality education for all Pakistanis, without any discrimination,
thus facilitating the creation of a knowledge-based society. (Pakistan Development Forum)
The mission and vision are consistent with the EFA and MDG goals and the objectives of the National
Education Policy, Education Sector Reforms (ESR) and Provincial Reforms Programme (PRP).
The achievements under the Provincial Reforms Program show good progress in meeting the challenge
of MDG of universal primary education (100% net enrolment) by the year 2015. The North-West
Frontier Province (NWFP) has made considerable progress in enhancing school enrolment, ratio of
female-to-male and literacy rates. However, much still remains to be achieved.
