  Education is a factor of considerable importance in economic growth and does not need any further elucidation Globally, it has been observed that countries attach the highest priority to education due to its complementarily with other sectors e.g., - Higher levels of education lead to higher returns to the health agriculture and industrial sector. The investment in education sector is vital for human resource development and quality of manpower. It is a universal accepted fact that the education is considered most powerful instrument to gear up socio-economic development and welfare of a society. This sector is highly associated with important variables in other sector. Such as health, family planning, house hold and family structures and labor force. The development in these sectors depends on how many man and women are literate and their level of education attainment. The education brings about changes in the attitude and behavior of the people towards modernization and quality of life, Particularly in the educated women. Govt. of Pakistan accepts education as fundamental right for its citizen as well as its commitment to provide access to education to every citizen. This challenge demands efficient use of available resources. These resources may come from the Govt., private sector, civil society groups and development partners. Education has been a provincial subject in the constitution of Pakistan but its record has not been impressive. In the past five decades, the education sector could not be given proper attention, which is evident from the lower literacy rates. The women are still illiterate. Their school enrolment is poor, even after enrolment they leave the school and increase the drop out rate. No doubt some progress has been made. The major reason for slow improvement in education sector is low level of public expenditure on education, which was around 2.3 percent of GNP during 1990s. This is significantly short of the minimum of four percent for GNP recommended by the UNESCO for developing countries.
