Shaping a Nation

An Examination of Education in Pakistan

Edited by Stephen Lyon and Iain R. Edgar
Genedral Editor: Ali Khan

Education is the key to transforming a society and Shaping a Nation is particularly pertinent because of the use and misuse of education in Pakistan. The contributors support efforts at widening access to formal education but recognize that education has consequences and that while some, perhaps most, are beneficial, others can be highly damaging. This book portrays a range of views on how education in Pakistan is, what it could be, and perhaps most importantly what it ought to be.
