What is your impression of Pakistan? War torn? Prevalent terror attacks? Then most people are probably skeptical of Pakistan's education system. Inspired by Malala, I decided to look into what books the local students enjoy reading. I also wanted to understand Pakistan’s local educational environment and the actual situation of girl’s education. some poor girls they can't afford to attend the public school, but they still would like to go to the free school in park everyday, which forced by no one. some girls they attend private school, they also enjoy the resource they have in library, have a lot of fun in reading different books. some girls lives in rural mountain area, they love study math and local dialect, because they know math is helpful for doing business in the future, and they could write poem in beautiful local dialect.
