The education crisis in Pakistan gets worse as the lack of internet force the Pakistani students leaving the study

A damn report by the British newspaper The Guardian shows that the lack of the Internet and the transition to remote schooling means that students belonging to low-income families in Pakistan and the far-flung areas are no longer able to afford education.

Marvi Soomro, IEI Pakistan member, says that regions such as Gilgit-Baltistan, due to a lack of access to technology, have been totally isolated as families can no longer earn a living by tourism for the purposed purposes of selling livestock.

Seema Aziz, the founder of the Care Foundation, was concerned that the attendance will decrease further as the Internet's lack outside the major cities made it almost difficult to learn a distance. She says: "We've been trying to start studying online on smartphones in a couple of our classes, but many of our students at home have no mobile signals and no internet connection."

Despite government action to implement EdTech in Pakistan to speed up education during COVID, the low-income population has benefited least from the penetration of education technology. In addition, the Internet efficiency in Pakistan is still one of the lowest in the country in spite of several billion initiatives aimed at speeding the development of Internet technology by means of higher Internet speeds, broadband networks, and improved connectivity in remote areas.

In terms of technical innovation and Internet connectivity, the underdeveloped or distant regions have yet to be synchronised with urban centres, and until such time education related problems that can be regarded as symptoms of the bigger problem will continue to affect the majority of the country.
