Websites keep on getting hacked...
Pakistan should have an Intranet network (not internet). This should not be connected to the world wide web and only individuals present in Pakistan should be able to access it. This intranet can be most helpful in improving the education system. I was watching 50 minutes on geo tv and they said that the main problem is the shortage of teachers. Especially in remote areas. Using this network you can have virtual classrooms being broadcasted from a central location. Other uses can be to create a national library, online tax filing, online elections..etc.
Now you might say that we need an optical network all over the country to connect schools, mosques, govt civil building and police stations. An optical network would indeed be expensive. With the wireless technolgy advancement, you don't need to have an optical system. Wi-max is cheep, has a 30 km range, and has greater than 10mbps speed....

In that program (50 min geo tv) the education minister was saying that she is from mand (turbat balochistan). The remotest part of the country. There is no water, roads or electricity there. And she said that finding people who could read or write was impossible, leave alone having teachers for a school. Imran khan was also on the pannel and said that in mian wali he was getting requests for opening secondary schools, and there were no teachers. The pannel member said that there was no shotage of primary schools in Pakistan. The only shortage was teachers.
So these schools are in dire needs of getting connected to a central system. Teachers sitting in lahore or quetta can broadcast lectures to classrooms in remote areas. Having in optic fibre linking every school is very expensive, if not impossible. The way to go is wireless. It is cheap and easy to install. With speeds up to 10mbps you can have two way video streaming. The use of on-site printers can assist in providing educational materials.
Areas like turbat on the otherhand, need electricity and water before anything..
