The major objectives of the study were to find out what the curricula, prescribed in the subjects of English and Pakistan Studies of the secondary classes, contained to promote awareness among the students about their responsibilities to the concerned society, and whether or not the curricula promoted reflective or critical thinking skill amongst the students. To attain the said objectives questionnaires were floated to school teachers; while four curriculum planners were interviewed. It was concluded that Peace, Love, and Harmony was essential for developing reflective or critical thinking skill of the learners but the curricula neither promoted reflective or critical thinking skill amongst the students nor it cultivated a sense of civic responsibilities amongst the students in letter and spirit.
