Though Sindh’s Education Sector Plan (ESP) commits to improving equity, access, quality, accountability and financing
in the province, there has been little progress for girls. While the total education budget in Sindh increased by 39%
between 2014–15 and 2017–18, there has not been a significant accompanying increase in school enrolment numbers.
Lack of secondary schools means dropout rates remain high.
Most of Sindh’s education budget is currently allocated to recurring expenses such as teachers’ salaries, which leaves
little room for capital investment in infrastructure. Financial inefficiency and governance issues mean funds are not
released on time and often remain unused at the district and school level. For the year 2015–2016, Rs. 134 billion of the
allocated Rs. 148 billion were spent.
