Although MENA region has gone through a lot of changes in the educational system in previous few years but a lot of development is still needed. A lot of improvement in the enrollment rate in schools is seen. This region faces multiple challenges in the field of education. The main issue is because of the gender gap and lack of critical thinking ability in people. The area has multiple resources and chances of success in the future, but this should be backed by the proper education system. The government should take proper measures to have more reforms in the education industry. Some of the reasons to have stability in the education sector of MENA region are as follows.
Mismatch in skills
The jobs available in MENA region should be entertained with an adequate level of skill in a person. There is a mismatch between the capabilities of the person performing the job and the actual requirement of the position. This thing originates from the education system. If the relevant education is given to people in the institutions, the significant skills will be developed in the individuals. It is the main hindrance in the growth of employees. Not only the technical but the soft skills should also be developed to have a more strategic approach towards success. Just a small portion of the population is skilled enough to serve the market after getting the education. It is a serious condition for the prosperity of job market. Proper training should be given to providing success to the individuals at the workplace.
Bulge in youth
Through estimations and forecasts, it is evaluated that the youth of MENA region would increase by a massive number shortly. Still, the area is having a lot of population issues in youth. To address the needs of such a huge population of youth, there should be a properly established and wisely governed system of education. There is a demand to have better educational facilities on all the levels. The existing educational institutions are not providing up to the mark services. Especially in rural areas, the children should be educated o serve the country later on.
Accountability of system
The existing system of education is not developed. There is a need to have proper assessment and governance of this system. The market demands more accountability of educational facilities to increase the quality of education. The schools are the basic place where the responsibility should be placed. These are the years where a child develops maximum skills. The teaching staff is also not qualified to develop that ability in the children. If proper governance and responsibility are placed, the system can flourish.
These are main reasons for which MENA region should have improvement in educational facilities. There are a lot of crisis taking place in the job sector of this region because of the low skill level of employees. It increases the need for growing education system so that the economy will thrive.
