Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Thursday said the government would implement the draft education policy for bringing a major change to the education sector. He said the government would go ahead with the visionary education policy prepared by a competent committee with leading educationists for initiating major change in the sector. He said, “We are lagging behind in different fields mainly due to the absence of an appropriate education policy that could not be prepared even in 40 years since the liberation.”

Nahid was addressing a rally at Mirganj Bazar of Golapganj upazila. Upazila Chairman Iqbal Ahmed Chowdhury and Upazila Vice Chairmen Humayun Islam Kamal and Nazia Begum Shila also spoke at the rally. He said the reasons behind the dropout of 42 percent children before completion of their secondary education and non-enrolment nine percent children in school were mentioned in the draft education policy. To achieve the goal in minimum time, implementation of the draft education policy is needed, he added.

He said the government had successfully distributed textbooks among the students free of cost up to class ten at the beginning of the year, a challenge for the government. The minister said they had to face difficulties in printing 19 crore books in phases but succeeded. The government exchanged views with noted educationists and other concerned on the draft education policy, Nahid said.
