By 1967, the government started to overtake the missionary schools as the main source of education for the country. Nevertheless, Convent, Cathedrals and Convent of Jesus and Marry remain the last prestigious institution till today. When check an important role of the missionary schools in the Pakistani society, you would expect the local Pakistani Christians to have gained benefit from them.
You would expect the local Christian community to be playing a positive role in the field of Education and learning. But the truth is exactly the opposite, by the recent statistics provided by Dr. Jordan Patric, state that the Pakistani Christians are the least educated in the entire world.
Only 6 % have primary education
4 % have high school education
1 % have college education
only 0.5% have professional education.
