There is a close
link between the prosperity of a nation and the quality of education
it provides for its people. Quality education improves standard of
living of people by enhancing the performance of engines of economic
development.This study focuses on application and analysis of total
quality management in colleges of education in Pakistan. A
questionnaire was developed after a careful review of the related
literature and consultation with experts. The questionnaire was
administered to teachers and students.
All the public colleges of education in Punjab i-e 10 were the
population of the study. From ten colleges of education 150 teachers
and 600 students were randomly selected.
In this study total quality management has been explored by covering
five aspects regarding management, infrastructure, teaching,
examination and objectives of B.Ed program. In order to examine the
quality of education and its five aspects mean, standard deviation,
population mean and t-test were applied.
It was concluded that both students and teachers agreed that the
overall quality of education was poor. There was a slight difference
in the opinion of teachers and students. Teachers consider quality
more at stake as compared to the students’ viewpoint.
There should be highly qualified and experienced teachers in
colleges of education to educate the future teachers. Better
employment opportunities may be created for academics. Their pay
scales be revised and they should be given quite an attractive pay
package in order to overcome the problem of brain drain of teachers
along with improvement in management techniques, infrastructure,
examination and objectives of B. Ed. Program.
It has been recommended that the concerned authorities should take
serious notice of the character of colleges of education in the
development of teacher education in Pakistan and implement concrete
measures for its improvement.
