Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni said that the government decided to make a two-day weekend in educational institutions from 2023. Before this, it is being considered whether the issue of the two-day weekend can be finalized this year itself.

She came up with the development while speaking at a seminar on 'National Conference and Role of Teachers in Upgrading Polytechnic Education' of Polytechnic Teachers and the National Mourning Day at Dhaka Polytechnic Institute on Friday.

The Education Minister said that it is being considered whether the weekend can be made for two days. Can't say anything until it's final.

She also said that no one is unemployed after taking technical education. So technical education should be made prestigious. All must work together to remove the confusion of common people about technical education. Technical and vocational education should be popularized. More students should be encouraged in technical education. When popularity increases with acceptance, respect is not a concern.
