Abstract

This chapter critically reviews the history, profile, state and proposed reforms of education in Pakistan, in the context of a developing Muslim country. It draws upon lessons from innovations as well as current challenges facing Pakistan as an illustrative case to improve educational provision, particularly teacher education, as the principal means to improve the state of education and encourage reform. The chapter concludes by a critical analysis of the role of international agencies, including bilateral donors, to determine their influence on current directions in education reform and their implications.
