Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Friday said the quality of education in Bangladesh is not bad compared with other countries in terms of higher education.
“The quality of education in our universities is much better, but there is room for improvement,” the minister said while responding to reporters before joining a programme in Chandpur on Friday afternoon, reports UNB.
Citing the example of BUET in the world rankings, the education minister said that BUET has come a long way in ranking. Besides, various universities including Dhaka University and Khulna University are performing extraordinarily. Many of our universities are doing world-class research. However, they need to pay more attention, Moni added.
“We didn't pay much attention to ranking before. Now the universities are paying attention. Our universities will do much better in the world rankings," she hopes.
Later, she inaugurated the distribution of paddy seeds and fertilisers among 1,200 small and marginal farmers at Chandpur Sadar Upazila auditorium.
Additional Deputy Commissioner (overall) Imtiaz Hossain, Additional Superintendent of Police Sudipta Roy, Sadar Upazila Parishad Chairman Nurul Islam Nazim Dewan, Sadar Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Sanjida Shahnaz and other officials were present on the occasion.
