Evaluation of the Existing Syllabus

Importance of textbooks

Why evaluate Textbooks?

1. They form the foundation of pre-university education system

2. They are written by country's leading college and university teachers.

3. They are the only source of information for the millions of students whose education stops at or before the 12th class.

What is to be evaluated?

-Evaluate the inaccuracies, distortions, exaggerations and slants.

-History as a subject in schools was abolished by the government of Ayub Khan. Its place has been taken as Mutala-e-Pakistan or Pakistan studies for classes 9-12th.

There is a saying:

"Past is the Present and it's the future too."

To know our past is the first step towards understating our present and planning our future.
