Punjab has become the first province to implement the SNC, what the government says will end classism in the country.
Earlier this month, Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister on Information said that Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has launched the Learning Management System on Single National Curriculum (SNC), a great step towards materializing PTI’s dream of one education system for all into reality
Talking to the media, Dr Firdous said that far-reaching reforms have been introduced to develop the education system on modern lines and online teachers training program is a unique step in this regard.
“Education has always been among the top priorities of the government and SNC will unite 220 million people as a strong nation.
Under one system of education for all, there will be one curriculum, one medium of instruction and one common platform for assessment,” she said.
The SNC for Grade 6 to 8 will be implemented from next academic year, while for Grade 9 to 12 be implemented from academic year 2023-24.
