The education minister also said activities for modification of curriculum of secondary level is going on.

Replying to another query from the same lawmaker, Dipu told the House that the proposed Education Act will be placed in parliament soon following approval from the cabinet.

In reply to a query from Awami League MP M Abdul Latif, the education minister said the government has set up Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) at 37 public and 58 private universities to ensure quality education and to assess activities of all departments and institutes of those universities.

“IQAC will be set up at all universities in phases,” she said.

Responding to a question of Awami League MP Shamima Akhtar Khanom, the minister said the government will change the names of the educational institutions which were enlisted under the monthly payment order (MPO) in 2019 but allegations have been raised that names of those educational institutions are related to controversial or anti-liberation persons.

“The process to apply for patent for invention of the vaccine is underway,” she said.
