i). The essay seems to lack cohesion. You need to give strenght to it and make its order right. Further, most of the points you have given are not worth to be made major points.!
ii). Perhaps from discussion you mean, own's view point? Try to improve your that aspect as well.
iii). You may like to add certain important points like ;
a). Patronage: Provision of education is the responsibility of government, but no government has given due consdieration to this vital aspect of nation building. In recent past during Musharaf era, Dr Atta ur Rehman tried to give boost to higher education but the base, the primary education or middle education, was not given any importance.
b). No vibrant state policy can be further enhanced like,
Education Policy: There is absence of any proactive education policy, the education policies which we had previously were either not vibrat or were not fully implemented, like of 1999-2010 Education Policy etc.
c). Finance: Funding remains very crucial for education sector, even in south asia, Pakistan remained a country where education and health were least concerned subjects... Now the subject has been transfered to provinces, mean there will be even less funding to it...
d). Curriculum: There are different educational systems in country, one the normal provincial education system, second the federal government school system including army public schools, cambridge system, american school system, lot of private schools and madrassah education systems (even in madrassah there are different wafaqs/tanzeems). People pay huge fees for private schools to make their childern acquainted to english and western systems! Such a variation is promoting differences/diaparities which instead of cohesion of nation, are furthering the rifts...
e). Inferiority complex: We, as a whole, often get into the inferiority complexes, we think that western education is the best thing and english/western culture is very important for our progress, resultantly we put our own culture/language behind and start sending our childern to english medium/westernized schools. We should get rid of this complex and start loving to ourselves/our heritage/our culture/our individuality....
f). Teaching standards: This may include the plight of teachers (who are usually from the lowest strata in terms of economic conditions as well as mental conditions) and infrastructural facilities etc.
iv) You have given reference of Madrassah education at one place, if you want to give madrassh education thn add more of the topic!

Education means training for life. The main aim of education is threefold – physical, mental, and moral development of human personality. We find a constant fall in the standard of education.
There are various reasons behind the problem. Everyone is equally responsible, the government, teachers, parents and students.
The government is indifferent to the problems. The changing governments in the country have failed to assess the real causes of educational deterioration. The education administration is slack, corrupt and rather helpless against the student community. There are no proper checks on the functioning of the educational institutions. Accountability is missing at all levels.
The parents are equally responsible for the falling standard. Home plays the most important role in shaping the thinking and character of children and youth. In fact, a mother’s lap is the first school for a child. Parents are over indulgent with their children. They are allowed to do as they please. Lack of proper upbringing of children is a main cause of poor discipline. Parents have no strict control on youth.
The teachers, in general, are the product of our corrupt society. The primary schools are the nurseries of the nation. But our primary teachers are the least qualified and lowest paid. How can they raise good crop?
At college and university level, very few teachers are devoted and dedicated. It’s a common complaint that teachers do not take classes regularly; they come late and leave the classes before time. The heads are rather helpless before the political appointees. The greatest responsibility for these ills falls on the student community in general. Absenteeism, irregularity, unpunctuality and indiscipline are common practices. The government is sleeping or ineffective. Not acquirement of knowledge but easy papers and fake degrees are the aim of education for them. Peace that is a must for learning is missing. Examinations have become more a test of unfair means and dishonesty than of attainment and proficiency.
