Formulation in 3-4 months

The government will formulate the National Education Policy within three to four months based on the Qudrat-e-Khuda Education Commission report of 1974.

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said this at a meeting with 30 renowned academicians at the secretariat yesterday.

He said the entire education system from primary to tertiary level would be re-designed according to the education policy.

“There is no need to form a new education commission. Considering recommendations from the academicians, we have decided to prepare a National Education Policy based on the Qudrat-e-Khuda Commission’s report,” the education minister said.

He hoped that government will able to complete the education policy by three to four months adding the policy will guide us to free the country from illiteracy.

Nahid also said government will also try to introduce an unified primary education system across the country merging the existing 11-kind of primary education system to end the discriminations in primary education.

The renowned academicians urged the education minister to stop the culture of forming new education commission to ignore the political interest.

Most of the academicians suggested formulating the national education policy based on Qudrat-e-Khuda Commission so that secular and science based education system can be introduced.

They also suggested that the report of the Qudrat-e-Khuda Commission should be slightly modified to make the policy fit for the country’s existing education system.

“Millions of public money were spent for previous seven education commissions by different political governments. But they didn’t implement the recommendations due to the apprehension of demonstrations by the opposition, said Prof Dr Zillur Rahman Siddique, former VC of Jahangirnagar University.

Prof Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, Chairman of Computer Science department of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, said government should immediately cancel the postponed ‘uni-track education system’ and introduce ‘real unified education system’ merging three systems–Bangla, English and Madrasa.

Prof Serajul Islam Choudhury emphasised on quality books and skilled teachers for ensuring quality education in the country.

UGC Chairman Prof Nazrul Islam suggested forming several advisory committees for improving education system from primary to tertiary level.
