Karachi (HRNW) All educational institutions in Pakistan will reopen from September 15, it was decided in an inter-provincial meeting headed by Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood on Wednesday.

The meeting was attended by all provincial education ministers via video link. It examined the success of online education during the coronavirus lockdown in the country.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s request to reopen schools, colleges and universities in the province was rejected by Mahmood after which a consensus was reached on the opening date of September 15.

The meeting also discussed on keeping a single curriculum across provinces. In the next meeting, ministers have been instructed to present their suggestions on the matter.
