Ideas have transformative power. The aim of the IEDBlog, the first of its kind in Pakistan, is to harness this power for improving education in the country by providing access to an array of scholarly endeavors and practical initiatives. Our blogs will be for a diverse audience, ranging from academic to interested members of the public. We seek to serve as a space for open, candid and critical intellectual engagement on matters to do with education in a broad sense of the term. Please read the editors’ note to find out how you can contribute and amplify the reach of your thoughts.
