Education Minister Dipu Moni has said that comprehensive changes to Bangladesh’s education system were necessary in order to prepare the country for further development.
“To realise the dreams, goals, and ambitions of a developed, prosperous nation by 2041 we need to update our education system,” she said on Toufique Imrose Khalidi Live on Monday.
“This cannot be done with small, gradual changes. That is why we are instituting change at a systemic level,” said the minister.
By properly harnessing Bangladesh’s labour force, the country will be able to attain the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the UN, Dipu Moni said.
Major changes are coming to the school and college curriculum and their system of assessment in the next few years.
A trial run of this revised curriculum will take place in 200 educational institutes in January 2022, the start of the new academic year.
From 2025, students across the country will study under the new curriculum. However, the reforms will be implemented in phases starting in 2023.
