Its thesis is a straightforward one: any nation on Earth that fails to educate its children is essentially planting the seeds of its own destruction. What, then, can one say of Pakistan - a country with one of the most wretched educational systems on Earth? With some schools that lack teachers, others exposed to the wind and weather given the absence of a roof, still others overflowing to the rim with garbage, and all suffering from the absence of organized, systematized lesson plans, classrooms and schedules, Pakistan is undoubtedly headed for a catastrophic fall. As evidence of this, the majority of its graduates do not even qualify as literate by western standards. As directed by Sayid Ali Nasir, The Miseducation of Pakistan exposes this realm, detailing all of its horrors; it pays particularly strong attention to the rotten corruption of the educators who take monies destined for the educational system and stuff their pockets with it, and the feudal leaders who see it as their advantage to keep peasants uneducated. The film at once functions as a shocking muckraking document and a passionate cry for social reform in a country that needs it desperately.
