Only after India took a 180 degree turn in 1991 we started on the path of rapid development which in turn helped even higher investment in education.
It's also not true that it is more difficult for large countries to develop rapidly. We have two glaring examples. China since 1990 and India since 2000.
And as I already mentioned in my previous post, Pakistan is in the middle of a war for God's sake. They will have to put money in education no doubt but they don't have a choice at this moment.
