Balochistan is considered one of the richest regions by natural resources in central Asia. Hence, it’s also the biggest province of Pakistan by area, yet it’s known the poorest province of Pakistan. According to an estimate, 22.6 million children are out of school and they don’t have any access to basic education. As a result, a large number of youths became drug addicted in each of it’s city. Similarly, 54 percent of the schools are run by single teacher. At the time, there are 11687 thousand primary schools, 1271 middle schools and 947 high school are available, most of them are in rural area where they turned into guests rooms and camps of Frontier Corps (FC), because of what recently in district Gawadar a huge protest was conducted to resist it. In accordingly, a survey, conducted in 2018 and 2017 determined budget of only education is not utilized. This is considered the most corrupt department in Pakistan. Regretfully, in twenty first era still numerous parts of Balochistan are deprived of educational institutions, viz schools, colleges, and universities as an effect of what is the excessive increase of problems such as, terrorism, poverty, unemployment, corruption, and many more. Thus, both the federal and provincial governments are requested to make new polices, grant funds, and make strategic decisions in respect of the Article 25A of constitution of Pakistan which says that “The State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of five to sixteen years in such manner as may be determined by law.”
