An effective educational system promotes social and economic advancement while assisting a nation in reaching its objectives. Phase one of the Single National Curriculum (SNC) has been introduced in Pakistani public and private primary schools. Through the use of a single curriculum, all students in the nation are to receive an education that is standardized. It was also believed that this would lessen inequality and fragmentation. This study looks at the advantages of SNC in both public and private schools as well as the necessary preparation. This study looked at the application of SNC in elementary public and private schools in Rawalpindi, Punjab, as well as the opinions of the teachers regarding its efficacy and implementation. In this investigation, casual comparability was employed. Using convenient sampling, the researcher selected 50 schools in the Tehsil Kahuta, District Rawalpindi to collect quantitative data. Using quantitative data, the researcher compared the design, execution, and descriptive and inferential statistical methods (mean, standard deviation, and t-test of independent samples).
