The Ministry of Primary and Mass Education is moving to a modern system by changing the traditional method of teaching in primary schools across the country. Homework will be scraped and teaching will be given in one shift instead of two shifts in the primary schools.

According to the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, the ministry is taking the initiative to complete school-based education in schools. Teachers have to finish as many lessons as they can in school. Students will spend more time in schools if necessary.

Senior secretary of the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education Akram-al-Hossain said that the students have to finish their school-centered education in the school. If necessary, students will stay longer in school. Students will not feel the pressure of school lessons when they go home. Then the children will be able to spend time happily with everyone at home. To this end, a single shift will be made in each school by eliminating a double shift.

According to Education Ministry sources, National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) has formulated a new curriculum structure for pre-primary to twelfth grade in 2022. One shift will be made in the curriculum by modifying the primary's present curriculum. Besides, class activities will be conducted by increasing the time of primary school.

At present, classes are held in one shift primary school from 9 am to 3:15 pm while classes are conducted in two shift schools from 9 am to 4:30 pm.

The time allotted for running the school in one shift will be extended. All the primary schools across the country will be run in one shift.

To change from double shift to one shift, other facilities including classrooms will be increased if necessary. In the meantime, plans are being implemented to increase students' school stay and make school-centered.

Akram-al-Hossain said, “I sat in a meeting with the Ministry of Education last Tuesday. It was decided to fix the curriculum hours from pre-primary to higher secondary. Once we have the infrastructure and enough teachers, we will be able to start one shift in primary school."
