There was time when sub-continent was noted all over the world as a glorious centre of education and culture where students from all parts of the globe used to pour in. It was an ideal system of education which apart from disseminating sweetness and light, infused in to the minds of the students a spiritual urge for coming in contact with these educational institutions. But now when we look at the present state of education in our country, the change shocks us deeply and we cry out in the language of Wordsworth.
Whither is the field the visionary gleam?
Where is it now, the glory and the dream?
It is asserted with great regret that our educational system day by day is going towards decay. The standard of education in the country is steadily falling. The students turning out every year from our educational institutions are not up to the mark. They are much below the expected level.
Let us find out where does the evil lie. In fact education lacks meaning and purpose. There is also quality education in our country. The whole system of education in our country is out of date. There is a set pattern of papers and books and also of lecture. The planners, teachers, students and the examination system all are responsible for the fast deteriorating quality of education. The planners of our education are mostly fed on borrowed ideas which have no relevance for the falling standard of education, barring a few honourable exceptions most of them are teachers by accident. They lack sincerity of purpose, dedication and missionary zeal.
A comprehensive plan to raise the quality of education in our country should be evolved. Emphasis should be laid on meaningful education. There is a lot importance of quality education.

We have to admit with regret that to day there is no such function of these educational institutions. They cultivate the intellectual powers of young, but do nothing in the direction of stimulating their imagination and feeling to their emotional life. They do not include in them a love of virtue and righteousness, a sense of self respect and personal dignity.
If we want a developed, progressive and prosperous Pakistan, we should give importance to quality education it is the only way to secure honourable place in the community of nations.
Role of Students.
Education means training for life. It should aim at to develop discriminative knowledge or wisdom. Education stands for training, up bringing development of human personality through three fold culture-physical mental and moral. But teachers pay more attention to the completion or running through the syllabi them to the human culture. Such as mechanical teaching has gone a long way in lowering the standard of education and erosion of personality of the students.
For correct analysis of the falling standard of education in the country, we will have to examine the whole education system in the country and its management. There are three major cogs in the machinery of education i.e. the teachers, the students and the syllabus. Its smooth running and improvement depends on these factors.
Teacher play the most important and practical role in improvement of education. The quality and worth of the teachers determine the quality of education. Some one has said “Give me good teachers and I shall give you good...
