Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood has said that the students will be taught “complete syllabus” during the current academic year and no concession would be given as was given the last year due to coronavirus pandemic.

The education minister said this while addressing a press conference hosted after he chaired the 33rd Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference in Karachi. During his address, Shafqat also announced that all examinations will be held in May and June, while Cambridge examinations will also be held as per schedule.

He also urged authorities to work together in the field of education and should keep education above politics.

 

The minister also shared that the government has received grants from the World Bank which are being used to provide education in districts where children are out of school. He said that girls are being facilitated so that maximum number can receive education. “In this regard, proper washrooms with boundary walls will be constructed along with other facilities,” he added.

Highlighting the issue of the absence of accurate data, Mehmood said: “Talks are underway regarding the formation of a committee which will be tasked to collect accurate data of education.” The state has “not given due priority to the education sector”, the minister said, adding that as a nation, “we need to invest more in education”.

He also informed that work related to the National Education Policy has also started, adding that we all want “to take all the provinces on board” and that all decisions will be made together and that differences will be resolved.
