Revision of National Education Policy (NEP) 2009 • Despite its efforts, Pakistan is still

Revision of National Education Policy (NEP) 2009 • Despite its efforts, Pakistan is still falling short on its commitment to achieve Universal Primary Education (UPE) and desired literacy rates (87% by 2015 EFA- NPA) • The need to review the NEP 2009 is essential so we can: – Match and upgrade decision making aligned to the devolved provincial set up and in light of article 25 -A – Address areas previously neglected in NEP 2009 e. g. Special/inclusive Education; ICTs; – Integrate the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially SDG# 4 and its 10 targets for education (to be finalized September 2015 globally) ; this replaces the MDGs. Sadly Pakistan remains off track to meet the MDGs (Goals 2 on UPE and 3 on Gender Equality ) – Identify the role of the community as a major support and accountability forum
