State minister for education Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury on Saturday said Bangladesh witnessed a revolutionary change in its education sector in the last 10 years.
‘The Awami League government has taken various initiatives for enhancing the standard of education. In the last 10 years, a revolutionary change took place in the country’s education sector,’ he said while addressing a view-exchange meeting with journalists at his residence in the port city.
As the quality of the country’s education has improved and certificates got international standard, the state minister said, students could take higher education from abroad easily.
‘We’ll try to maintain the quality of education,’ he said.
The state minister said attention would be given to infrastructural development of the existing educational institutions and increasing the number of teachers in those institutions instead of setting up new institutions.
He stressed introducing double shift class management system in the educational institutions to address the pressure of additional students.
Replying to a question, the state minister said, ‘The present government has given special importance on the education of women. The women education is advancing fast here. Nobody can halt the progress.’
