Boards of education to be unified: Ahsan

 
December 4, 2014

KARACHI: The aim of the national curriculum council is to prepare a unified curriculum in consultation with all the provincial governments for the innovation of the curriculum, and the required funds and resources have been provided in the budget for such a task.
This was stated by the Federal Minster for Planning and Development, Ahsan Iqbal, while addressing the faculty members of the Sindh Madressatul Islam University here on Wednesday.
He said that under the council, standardization would be achieved by the unification of all the boards of education of the provinces so that a degree conferred on a student in one province was recognizable in all the other provinces.
The federal minister said that it was the right of every student in every city, town and village to acquire unified quality education for which, along with the curriculum, the government was also going to be reviewing the examination system.
Ahsan Iqbal said that under the 18th Amendment, education had been devolved to the provinces, but there was a need for good coordination in the system.“We have to work harder for achieving better quality of education so as to bring about a revolution in the social sector,” he said. He said that the government’s motto was to make education job-oriented as well as to instill the values of positive thinking and social responsibility in the educated populace.
