Education, Challenges, Political Stability, Quality of Teaching and Learning, Recommendations.


Education plays a crucial role in ensuring political stability and driving socio-economic progress within a country. However, the presence of varied education systems offering distinct forms of instruction has resulted in an uneven educational framework. The researchers conducted an examination of Pakistan's education system, its operational mechanisms, and associated challenges, utilizing a mixed methodology. Within the quantitative segment, the researchers employed a survey technique alongside a questionnaire to gather data from a sample of 450 participants through a multi-stage systematic sampling approach. For the qualitative phase, the researchers employed an interview guide to engage 40 participants, including university-level teaching staff and students. The findings of the current investigation reveal that education serves as a catalyst for political stability by instilling a sense of national rights and responsibilities among individuals. This heightened awareness subsequently fosters cooperation, participation, and harmony. Furthermore, education molds individuals' characters, enabling their active participation in societal affairs. It emerges as a fundamental tool for empowerment, promoting human rights and gender parity
