Removal of the novel “Goodbye Mr. Chips” from the syllabus has a lot more to say


The very old English novel, “Goodbye Mr. Chips” by James Hilton has been removed from the syllabus after 55 years. The novel was being taught to the students across Punjab Textbook Board.

As soon as the news of the removal of the novel came on the surface, it spread like wild fire on social media. Punjab Textbook Board has decided to replace Goodbye Mr. Chips with an essay that will be detailing the life of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). People started commenting randomly over the change in the syllabus.
Here are some of the public reviews. People appreciated the sagacious step taken by the PTI Government. They were quite eager for this change to happen.

But a handful of people, who were rather attached to the novel, lamented its absence from the syllabus.

Reason for why students don’t like the novel, was perhaps the large portion that novel was having adding that the novel was quite outmoded. But somehow, there were students who actually enjoyed reading the novel and were much concerned about the story.

Well, for me, the replacement of the novel with the tales from the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH) is really very interesting as well as a wise step taken by the government.
