KARACHI: The caretaker government of Sindh has recently made a significant decision aimed at preserving the Urdu language while introducing English as the medium of instruction to transform the education system.
To implement this decision, the Director School Secondary Karachi, acting on official directives, has issued a formal notification. Copies of this notification have been dispatched to Education Minister KPA Haleem Soomro and other relevant authorities for their information.
According to the notification, a notable change has been made in the educational landscape, with secondary and higher secondary schools transitioning to English medium instruction.

This directive underscores the government’s commitment to maintaining the Urdu language’s significance while adapting to a more globally recognized medium of instruction.
