Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Tuesday said, “We are marching forward with a new Bangladesh. So, we have to provide priority education as today’s students may lead the nation in the further."
The Education Minister made this remarks while inaugurating the distribution of newly printed books among students at Azimpur Government Girls’ School and College in the capital.
“We have been trying to refurbish the education system from 2010. Bangladesh is a country where so many books are distributed for free. Girl students are doing better now in every sector and around two crore students are getting scholarships each year. So far, we have distributed more than 296 crore books in last nine years,” he said.
Nurul Islam also urged the teachers to teach their pupils properly. “Morality must be taught them alongside regular education,” he added.
Earlier on December 24, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina formally inaugurated the distribution of free textbooks.
The government started the Textbook Festival nine years ago, by distributing the books among students across the country as a gift for the New Year.
The government has printed 35,21,97,822 copies of textbooks for the students of primary and secondary schools, Ebtedai and Dakhil madrasas and technical institutes, according to officials of National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB).
Over 9.88 crore copies are for primary schools and 18 crore are for secondary ones.
