Courts and Education Reforms?


I provided several links to court cases related to educational issues in the United States in some posts on this blog [See 1, 2, 3, 45, and 6].  These are cases where litigants challenge the constitutionality of one or the other aspect of education decision making/financing etc. in the United States.  There must be similar cases in other federations as well.  I do not know much about such cases elsewhere though, especially in the developing countries, with the exception of India [See, for example, this, this, and this ; there may be many more examples].  If you know about them, please post them on this blog.

But certainly, I can’t seem to find a single litigant challenging the unconstitutionality of current levels of educational spending in Pakistan.  It is understandable, since education was not justiciable until 25A.  But even after 25A?  A search with “education” on Pakistan’s Supreme Court’s website only throws up resumes of the honourable judges.  No Litigation on any matter related to education other than teachers’ pensions!

What the courts should do, can do, must do, so on and so forth, not much is said on these questions?  or is there?
