These include the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), which promotes modern management and IT usage in schools across Pakistan, and the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE), which oversees secondary education. The Higher Education Commission was established to regulate and promote better integration of the university system in Pakistan, whilst the National Vocational and Technical Education Commission (NATVEC) is responsible for vocational learning.
Public spending on education was 2.4% of GDP in 2010.
A review of the National Education Policy 1998–2010 was initiated in September 2005; a white paper published by the National Educational Policy Review Team in February 2007; and a new national educational policy approved by cabinet in September 2009.
