Federal and provincial education ministers will meet today (Tuesday) to discuss a proposal to close education institutions for winter vacation in January instead of usual December.
Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood will preside over the meeting. Reforms in the provincial education system and shifting the winter break to January from December are some of the issues that will be discussed in the meeting.
However, the Sindh government has already announced winter break in educational institutions from December 20 to January 1.
Meanwhile, a Ministry of Education official said the government wanted to delay the winter vacations till January so that the ongoing vaccination drives across the country could be held.
However, he said that the final decision will be taken up by education ministers.
