About Book

The Single National Curriculum (SNC) is the major recent intervention in school education in Pakistan. It has already been launched for Grades 1 to 5 and will be extended to Grades 6 to 8 and Grades 9 to 12 in two steps by 2023. This intervention will have far-reaching and irreversible implications for the lives of children who will study under it. For that reason, it needs to be subjected to critical analysis. This monograph is intended as contribution to that effort.
