Quotas necessary based on principle of social justice

The country is currently embroiled in a heated debate over reservation or quota issues. Students and job seekers are staging daily protests and road blockades. Dhaka city has been paralyzed for the past few days due to these protests, leading to severe traffic congestion in various places. The public’s frustration is directed at the government, with many questioning why it isn't addressing the quota issue. Government officials maintain that the decision to abolish or retain quotas is currently under judicial review and that it is up to the courts to decide.

New Scheme for the Teachers should be further Discussed

Since June 1st, Dhaka University and other public universities in the country have been observing a comprehensive strike by faculty members demanding the withdrawal of discriminatory 'Certainty Scheme' for public pension, related to inclusion in the Super Grade, independent pay. This strike is being carried out in response to the call of the Bangladesh University Teachers' Federation and the Teachers' Association of Public Universities. As a result, classes and exams at public universities across the country have been suspended since July 1st. Is not the new scheme, really, discriminatory and harmful for the teachers, working in public Universities? Let’s go through the facts.

No progressive force can be found in the country now

In seeking an answer to the question of which path Bangladesh is on, we must examine the clear objective of establishing a powerful, prosperous, and democratic state. Mere protest and resistance against malevolent forces yield no significant benefit; at best, they may only replace one corrupt power with another. Constructive thought and action are necessary. We must break the existing laws, regulations, and structures to establish better ones, not to perpetuate disorder. We need to break down the old to build anew, not just to destroy. The focus now must be on building.

Science-based curriculum a must for progress in education

Next year, the government will introduce a new curriculum in some classes of primary and secondary level. There is a lot of discussion and criticism about the changes in the curriculum and student evaluation system in the new curriculum. I feel compelled to write on this subject at the request of my one-time colleagues Sheikh Azizul Haque, Zahurul Islam, and Bangladesh Bank official Mithun Das—implementing a new curriculum to introduce creative learning instead of a rote learning system. The curriculum also aims to eliminate fear and create a joyful atmosphere in the classroom. The new curriculum emphasizes practical knowledge during learning and continuous assessment in class rather than written annual examinations.

We must reap benefits of the demographic dividend

Bangladesh is passing through a time of demographic dividend for the time being. Every nation witnesses this demographic dividend situation only once. Some opine that a nation witnesses a demographic dividend situation once every thousand years. The nations that can utilize the demographic dividend in a planned way, they are the ones who reach the peak of economic and social development. Demographic dividend refers to a situation where a country’s total population’s two-third or more is of the age between 18 and 60 years. That means the working age population’s ratio is higher, and this situation is called demographic dividend; it can also be referred to as the number of working age people being higher than that of children and elderly in a population.

Bangladesh has literally the worst education and school system, even worse than the Indian and Chinese education system. It is not only talking about this country's system trying to reveal the dark truth. So, everyone can be aware before it's too late. Every guardian, student and even though most of the teachers are very dissatisfied with new curriculum. No doubt it is totally frustrating. Nation ultimately losing to build up the leading generation. Ultimately, it is turning into a deeper national crisis. Recent general publics’ reaction is more severe. Who will take this charge ? Who will bear this loss ? Who will take care to overcome the situation ? Its very basic and fundamental asking of nation. Nation needs to know how and nation also urge for solution. Why Bangladeshi school and education system is so bad and cruel and not as easy but effective as the school and education system of Western countries. In the new educational curriculum the parental involvement has been eliminated which is also very alarming.
