Fact Sheets on Education – Balochistan

Since 2013, Balochistan has made some progress in curtailing teacher absenteeism, identifying ghost schools and partially
addressing the inequality between the numbers of primary schools and the number of middle and high schools. Between
2011–2012 and 2016–17, the budget for education rose from Rs. 22.66 billion to Rs. 48.61 billion. However, significant
challenges remain.
While the recurrent budget for expenses such as teacher salaries and learning materials has risen each year, the development
budget for infrastructure, missing facilities and teaching materials has declined. The current education development budget
stands at Rs. 6.44 billion against a recurrent budget of Rs. 42.18 billion. Balochistan has also consistently allocated
significantly less to education than all other provinces. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has the second-lowest education budget —
but at Rs. 123.07 billion for 2016–17, it dwarfs the Rs. 48.61 billion allocated in Balochistan.
