Punjab Education Minister Dr Murad Raas on Wednesday said that licences of private schools would be cancelled if they failed to implement the Single National Curriculum (SNC), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Murad Raas said that all educational institutions must ensure full implementation of uniform curriculum and government’s writ will not be challenged under any circumstances. 

He claimed that the same curriculum is taught in all developed countries of the world.

“After the next four weeks, the licences of the private schools in which the uniform curriculum will not be fully implemented will be cancelled,” he gave clear-cut warning to the private schools

“A syllabus does not mean having a book while the syllabus is within the framework issued by the government,” Dr Murad Raas said.

The minister said that uniform curriculum has been implemented after detailed consultation with all stakeholders and inspection of implementation of SNC in all schools of Punjab is starting from Thursday. 

“All SNC books prepared under uniform curriculum are available in all districts of Punjab,” he said. 

Murad Raas said that inspection has also been launched in schools regarding vaccination of entire staff. He urged educational institutions to ensure vaccination of teachers, administration and other staff.
