PPP, PML-N Supporting Govt On Single National Curriculum
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Qamaruz Zaman Kaira and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Tanveer have said that are on board with the Single National Curriculum being designed by the federal government.
Speaking on a TV show, Kaira told Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood that it would be sole ‘good deed’ of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) if it managed to implement the uniform curriculum across the country.
At this, the show host said that Rana Tanveer has also endorsed the uniform syllabus, which means the curriculum was supported by both opposition parties.

In a broad, overarching, centralised effort to bring madrassahs, private schools and public schools at the same level, the government wants to ensure every single student studying in grade 1 to 5 is taught the same text.
The education minister had revealed that the end goal is unrelenting uniformity so that the core text is the same for a ‘student at a madrassah and those at the Aitchison College’.
