CM Punjab has set aside Rs. 50 billion to improve 39,000 schools

The Punjab government is putting Rs 50 billion towards upgrading over 39,000 schools, including turning 7,000 elementary schools into high schools and boosting 32,000 primary schools to the elementary level. This will happen over two to three years, with modern IT and science labs added.

Previously, Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif criticized delays in delivering textbooks to students, calling it unacceptable. In a recent meeting she chaired, a proposal was discussed to create a Standardized Matriculation Examination Board and centralize school education under one body.

This investment shows the government’s commitment to improving education infrastructure and resources, aiming for a better learning experience. The goal is to enhance the education system province-wide by raising school levels and introducing modern facilities.
