has improved a lot during the recent past, which has been immensely successful in bringing up the latent talents.
Though the elite and upper middle class and a significant part of the middle class Pakistanis are educated, a large part population has a long way to go. As population below the poverty level is too high, so is the level of uneducated Pakistanis. Pakistan has about a total of 35% of the population educated. When calculated in terms of sex, 47% of the males are educated followed by 21% of the women. Much has been done to raise the level of education among the girl child.
