The Alif Ailaan Pakistan District Education Rankings 2013 is an in-depth assessment of the state of education in the country. This ground- breaking study, conducted in association with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), brings together a range of key education indicators to develop a system of ranking the quality of schooling in every district, region, agency and territory. Two sets of data are analysed: the education index looks at variations in access, attainment, achievement and gender balance, while the school index is based on the availability of essential infrastructure and facilities. The results are used to generate a scorecard for every district.
The Alif Ailaan campaign aims to bring education to the forefront of public discourse in Pakistan. The district education rankings show how widely standards vary across the country. It is our hope that the findings of this report will serve as the basis for a more informed debate on the urgent need for education reform in Pakistan.
