Education minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Friday stressed the need to upgrade the curriculum and education system to make future generations fit for the advanced world.
The minister came with the observation while addressing a scholarship awarding ceremony among the children of Dhaka Reporters Unity members.
The award was given for attaining a grade point average score of 5 in Secondary School Certificate and Higher School Certificate examinations in 2018.
The DRU organised the programme at its Crime Reporters’ Association of Bangladesh auditorium in the morning.
Nahid said that there was huge scope for improvement in the quality of the country’s education system and it was an issue the government was working on.
He also said, ‘Last year, I face widespread criticism over the issue for question paper leaks. I took the
criticism positively and tried my best to stop the leaks.’
Nahid said that at least 250 criminals were arrested for their involvement in question paper leaks and no one would be spared for their involvement in the crimes.
He stressed the need for creating a strong sense of morality among the new generation alongside a good academic result.
