The Alif Ailaan District Education Rankings 2015 is the third annual attempt at comparing and contrasting the various regions of Pakistan based on their standards of education.
Despite of poor performance in the school infrastructure score, GB districts continue to score well on the education rankings. All the seven districts score higher than 50%.Only one district Diamer appears to be out of the top half.
Gilgit Baltistan is the only region in the country where non of the district score lower than 50% on the learning score.
Alif Ailaan and SDPI began this exercise in 2013. The attempt is to assess both educational outcomes and school infrastructure by comparing the relative performance of different regions.
The objectives of the rankings are:
- To produce a comprehensive measure of education standards in Pakistan, covering important policy areas such as access, quality, gender parity and infrastructure.
- To use this measure as the basis for a comparison of different parts of the country to track their performance, and thereby to encourage healthy competition between districts and between provinces.
- To create awareness about the importance of data and evidence in assessing the state of education, and to promote the use of data in the development of education policy.
- To encourage more accurate and comprehensive data collection by government and non- government entities.
