Change of syllabus irks students, parents
Islamabad: Students of Federal Government Schools (FGS), as well as their parents, have protested against the recent change in syllabus.

The change in syllabus of Class 5 has caused nuisance to the students, as they have already spent a month studying the old syllabus.

"This is an anti-poor people act by the government, as we are from the low-income class of employees. We had purchased the expensive books for our children, and now the authorities have changed the syllabus. The additional cost [of books] is unbearable, and we cannot afford to purchase new books right away," said Muhammad Ali.

"Our classes started a month earlier, and we have completed a considerable part of our syllabus. But now we have been told that the syllabus of English, Urdu and Islamiat has changed. Now we have to buy new books and start studying from scratch again," said a student. The students and their parents have demanded the government provide books of new syllabus to the students for free to ease their burden.
