What is wrong with our question papers?
A series of illegible questions from the ongoing Primary School Certificate English exam paper are contradicting government claims that education standards are “higher than ever”. The error-strewn script was exposed on Facebook by concerned parents of children taking the exams in Sylhet. Questions included: “What would happen if no the Mujibnagar govt. was formed?” “Why Bangladesh to import a lot of vegetable oil? Because, Production is low than demand.” “What is happened in the people of this country as a result of ‘divide and rule’ policy of British?” “Which is the most important for developing the life standard of women in Bangladesh?” The revelations will come as a further blow to an education system which is already under-fire for a string of question paper leaks in recent weeks. Prof Rebecca Haque from Dhaka University cited one question which asks students what they would do if the Pakistani army “takes your father away”. She said: “The options are – do you cry, do you hide, do you stop them, or do you tell the freedom fighters? What kind of questions are these?” Prof Rebecca lamented the lack of oversight, moderation and accountability in these matters. “This culture of mistake-laden questions is also pervasive in universities,” she said. Attempts by the Bangla Tribune to contact the chief of the Directorate of Primary Education were not successful.
