Human chain to stop commercialisation in education

News Desk Lion Md. Gani Mia Babul, central president of Bangabandhu Research Council, said, trade is going on in the name of education in the country. This education trade must stop soon. He was speaking as the chief guest at a human chain organised by Bangladesh Education Observer Society in front of the National Press Club on Thursday morning on the occasion of the Education Day to demand restoration of discipline in education. “At present there is no effective education policy in Bangladesh. Education is going on in multiple streams. Education has been turned into a commodity. In order to make the development of the country sustainable, discipline must be brought back in the field of education,” said he. He added that the Qudrat-i-Khuda Education Commission formed during the Bangabandhu regime gave emphasis on single-channel, technical and non-communal education system. But the current curriculum is riddled with fundamentalist and communal ideologies. Presided over by Bangladesh Education Observer Society chairman principal M Shariful Islam, the programme was addressed by among others NAP Bhasani chairman Mostaq Ahmed Bhasani, Jatiya Swadhinata Party chairman Md. Mizanur Rahman Mizu, Anisur Rahman Desh, Swapan Kumar Saha, Dr. Syed Al-Amin Roman, Md. Sajjadur Rahman, Md. Mahfuzur Rahman, Mrs. Halima Khatun, Fahim Ahmed Toha, Md. Rafiqul Islam Manik and Mirza Shelly.
