PM Imran Khan Launches The First Phase Of Single National Curriculum.
Today, PM Imran Khan launches the first phase of the Single National Curriculum in the country saying that it was his vision from the last 25 years, which people sometimes termed as an impossible thing in the country.
PM Imran Khan said while addressing the launching ceremony that previously children from the ruling elite were able to access English medium schools and secure top slots.
He said that today the number of English medium schools has increased, raising a divide in the society. “No country does this by dividing its curriculum,” he said.
According to the press information department, the Sindh government has rejected the Single National Curriculum, and not a single person from the Sindh government attend the launching ceremony.
The SNC is being developed and released in three phases:
- Phase-I will be implemented for the curriculum for grades Pre-1 to 5 (the academic year 2021-22)
- In Phase-II, the curriculum for grades 6 to 8 (the academic year 2022-23) will be implemented.
- Phase-III will be implemented for the curriculum of grades 9 to 12 (the academic year 2023-24) will be implemented.
PM Imran Khan said that implementation of a single curriculum was the first step and would lead to criticism from status-co who would never want this system to be implemented.
