Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni on Thursday said that all coaching centers will be closed for one month from January 25 to February 25 on the occasion of SSC and equivalent examination.

She said this at a press conference on the occasion of SSC and equivalent examination in the Education Ministry at the Secretariat.

Responding to reporters’ queries, the Education Minister said that measures were being taken as “the matter of some illicit institutions were involved in various misdeeds, including question paper leakage, fake questionnaire in the name of coaching - were proved”.  

For this, those who are not involved in these are also come to spotlight, she said.

Explaining the matter, she said there are many coaching centers in the country. There are coaching centers for O-level and A-level exams. In addition, there are coaching centers for learning English, BCS and university admissions. 

“It would have been much easier to close it if they were a separate entity. But in most cases, different coaching is being done under the same roof.” 

Mentioning there is no opportunity to distinguish who is involved in misconduct, she said that all coaching runs under the same roof. “For this, all coaching centers must be closed for one month under compulsion.”
