Why Cantab Publisher
Why should you use CANTAB? We have made a difference in the Pakistani society by creating a common curriculum for the children of this country. The child that comes out of a private school mostly embraces the western culture or grows up into a bureaucrat just to rule the country. He walks without any idea of his culture, national ideology and religious code of life.
Thirty years ago, private schools did not exist. That was the time when same curriculum was taught in all government educational institutions. There was a kind of unity and coherence in the society. Past three decades produced an elite class, hibernated at private institutes, who were alienated in their own country losing their national identity by following the curriculum of western nations just to ‘fascinate’ the common public.
The differences between Pakistan and Cambridge/Oxford textbooks was closely observed during our stay at University of Cambridgefrom 1995 to 2005. It was our wish to mold and replicate those ideas and use them for the development of our future generation. Luckily, Government of Pakistan introduced National Curriculum 2006, National Textbook and Learning Material (NTLM) Policy 2007 and National Education policy 2009. The National Curriculum 2006 is unmatchable in-terms of vertical and horizontal alignment and up-to date knowledge. The NTLM policy was totally a new method of developing the Textbooks. According to this policy, the Textbooks are to be developed by private publishers and the government has to select one out of them for the government schools.
