The City by the Sea has beaten the rest of the country for the top slot on the literacy rate ladder, according to statistics mentioned by the Pakistan Millenium Development Report of 2006.
In 1998, Rawalpindi was at the top slot, followed by Karachi, Lahore, Jehlum, Gujrat, Sialkot, Quetta, Chakwal, Abbottabad, and finally Gujranwala rounding off the top 10 most educated districts in Pakistan. Seven years later, however, the positions have changed slightly. Karachi now holds the top slot, followed by Rawalpindi which has slipped a notch.
Lahore has maintained its position at number 3, while Chakwal has moved up four places (from number 8 to number 4). Gujranwala is up five places (from number 10 to number 5), Jehlum and Gujrat have dropped two places to numbers 6 and 7 respectively, Quetta has dropped one place to number 9, while Sialkot has dropped a whopping four notches to number 10 (from number 6 in 1998).
Shud we rejoice on this statistics....or u have some reservation upon "Definition" of literate in Pakistan :-)......
