Abstract: Efforts have been taken to some extent in public sector schools but no constant attention and continuous interest is paid to fill the digital gape. Education and ICT can be sound and significant if these kept beyond the political priorities in Pakistan. Urban areas of t Pakistan are well equipped with sound facilities and education of recognized quality but rural areas suffer from this experience. Expansion of private sector in education system has elevated the use of ICT accordingly and middle and upper class families prefer to get services from private schools for quality education of the children. This research recommends that ICT practice should be uniform in all units of Pakistan. ICT application should not be left on the sympathy of conditions as this system needs strong leadership.
