In a conversation with a private news channel, he said that the government will not compromise on student health, because in these COVID-19 cases, our top priority has always been the safety of students and teachers.
He said that strict standard operating procedures will be established by the federal government, but provincial governments will be allowed to make changes based on the situation in their respective provinces.
He added: “We are now trying to readjust the entire learning process, the teaching process, and the way to recruit children to schools with strict SOPs. We are working hard to hold meetings and consult with the Sindh provincial government.”
He warned that any school or academic institution that violates SOP regulations will be closed by the authorities.
He said that we need to learn to “live with coronavirus”, but reopening the school with reasonable prevention is a step in the right direction.
He also mentioned that parents must keep secrets and explain the risk factors to them with facts.
He said that the government is studying several options, including arranging courses of different standards on the next day. He added that there are also suggestions to hold courses in the open air.
In answering the question, the Minister emphasized the government’s efforts to improve the quality of education and added that students will be provided with a market-oriented education system with the same curriculum so that they can easily find a job.
He assured the government that a unified national curriculum for grades one to five would be launched soon, so that private and public students could also receive education at school.
He said that the federal government will soon develop a unified curriculum across the country.
A unified education system will end the conflict between public and private schools and religious schools. This is the primary task of the current government.
He emphasized that the unified curriculum is the ultimate solution for unity among all levels of society.
