Topic: Political Representation in Education

In words of the famous Malala Yousafzai, “One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world.” Since its inception over 71 years ago, Pakistan has largely been unsuccessful in changing its destiny due to its evident failure of providing access to quality education to most of its population. A literacy rate of just 55% – one of the lowest in the world, is one of the many alarming results associated with a fragile education system. The Special Committee on Education will broadly focus on the current education system of Pakistan, and how there is a need to overcome the differences and loopholes that have been created within it. The discussion will revolve around the following aspects:

a) Women and Education

b) Nationalism and Education

c) Student Activism

The committee will work towards ensuring that the principles of equality and democracy, on the basis of which the country was formed, are applied to the education system, and that the dream for a new, inclusive Pakistan is fulfilled.
