Liberal Education

81

The importance of liberal education in this modern world is greater than ever before. The world is so well-organized that all economic and social activities require modern and advanced means of communication and technology. The transformation of technology development is moving at a tremendous pace. There is a need for co-operative and liaison staff to run this complex program. Moreover, despite their interdependence, the diversity in different areas is very different. Therefore, the man needs to be prepared enough to move forward. And a tool that can enable him to meet these challenges is nothing but Liberal education. That is why the famous scholar “Skarnovey” says: “Liberal education: developing countries should embrace it as it is needed”. However, it is important for all nations but developed countries are at the forefront of the sector. Developing countries, lagging far behind, must make every effort to transform their education system to meet the needs of the world. Not only does it contribute to economic development but it also meets the needs of society in all spheres of life. The field of free education is wide enough to call real education. Basically, education is intended to develop a complete human personality. It is necessary to teach a person to learn social behavior, cultural norms, religious obligations, methods and practices of a stable society and professional competing skills. Liberal education, by and large, fulfills all these basic needs. It emphasizes the development of a citizen who can live in a civilized way – a way that not only benefits him but also benefits other members of his family, community and community. Thus, the objectives of liberal education are many, which address the needs of society to a large extent. Unfortunately, in Pakistan, liberal education is not taken seriously. The education system in our country is out of date. It has no modern teaching method and the curriculum is probably from the grassroots to the university. The shortcomings of our education system are the main causes of conflict, unemployment, poverty and social instability in our society. In order to overcome these shortcomings, we must embrace a liberal education system without delay. However, this requires a well-thought-out and comprehensive policy to improve the existing education system. It not only helps a person achieve goals more efficiently but also gives impetus to economic, political and social stability in the country.
