He said that this would create a tendency for children to memorize and affect their creativity. Pakistan's primary education sector is 50 years behind the world in achieving its educational goals, and the secondary sector is 60 years behind. By restricting them to one book, they are being deprived of the right to proceed. He expressed serious concerns over the move to hold the academic session in August and deviate from the announcement to open all institutions on January 25.
