Mentioning that the education framework is being modernized following the policy of the government, she said Bangladesh must not lag behind as the world is advancing in terms of knowledge, science and technology.

Hasina expressed satisfaction over today’s presentation saying measures were highlighted there to make academic activities more attractive to students alongside teaching them on life and livelihood.

The prime minister regretted that the educational institutions had been closed for more than the last one and half years due to the Covid-19 pandemic although online education activities continued during the time.

In this regard, she said, the children were deprived of enjoying their academic life and environment in educational institutions, including colleges and schools.

About the reopening of the educational institutions, the prime minister hoped that the situation would get normal in the days ahead.

She said the government introduced pre-primary education to attract children to schools through games and amusement.

Terming Bangladesh a country of rivers, canals and swamps, she said, the government is constructing schools and colleges across the country keeping this reality in mind.

Besides, necessary steps have been taken to build roads and paths towards the schools in villages to ensure easy communications of the students, she added.

In the past, Hasina said, the children were not interested in science education and her government took steps to establish 12 Science and Technology Universities in the country to attract them in science education.

Alongside these, the government also established specialized universities in the country on some specific subjects, she said.

About primary education, the prime minister said the government nationalized primary schools and gave the highest importance to technical education following the footprint of Bangabandhu.
