Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid has said the newly-elected government will prioritize modernizing education to meet the demands of the time.

Nahid commented this while distributing free textbooks to eight students at Azimpur Government Girls' School and College in Dhaka, as part of the Textbook Festival, on Tuesday.

He furthered: “Bangladesh has presented a unique example to the rest of the world by distributing textbooks to students free of cost. Our challenge for the new year is to create meritorious citizens. 

“The country achieved independence through the sacrifice of three million people. We have come this far, and now it is your [the students’] duty to take Bangladesh further.”

Addressing guardians, the education minister said: “You [guardians] have your duties toward the children, just as the teachers have their duties toward the students. Teachers and guardians will have to work together to create a meritorious nation.

“In the past ten years, a total of 2,960,789,172 textbooks have been distributed to students across the country. This year, a total of 352,197,882 books will be distributed to 2,619,000 students.”

The event was presided over by Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education Secretary Sohrab Hossain, plus attended by Technical and Madrasa Education Department Secretary MD Alamgir and NCTB Chairman Professor Narayan Chandra Saha.

Many senior officials from the Education Ministry and Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education were also present at the program.
