In 2018, the ASER rural survey took into account 196,253 children between 5 to 16 years of age and assessed their competence in local languages (Urdu/Sindhi/Pashto), English, and Arithmetic. The report tried to see progress with respect to Article 25A of the constitution-making education a fundamental right for children between 5 to 16 years of age. The report also tracked advancement towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, assessing learning at the lower primary level.

According to the report, the proportion of out-of-school children had decreased to 17 percent in 2018 as compared to 19 percent in 2016. Early childhood education was also assessed in the report. It stated that from 2014, the enrolment recorded at 39 percent declined to 37 percent in 2015, 36 in 2016 and rose to 37 percent in 2018 again in rural areas of the country.

The report highlights that the quality of education has improved as compared to the past. The ASER says that private school teachers were reported to have better qualifications. As many as 42pc teachers in private schools are graduates compared to 36pc in government schools.
