In Pakistan, schools are failing. Private schools hire teachers short of classroom experience and/or qualification, while public schools appoint administrators on seniority, disregarding merit and/or competence. The dearth of passionate educators explains the poor state of our country’s schools. RICA serves this country by developing model institutes and educators.
