Little scope of ideological edn in BD: Prof Manzoorul


Staff Reporter :
Professor Syed Manzoorul Islam of Dhaka University said only job oriented education cannot establish peace in the society.

The Educationalist said this discussion meeting titled ‘International Education Day 2024’ held the International Mother Language Institute Segunbagicha in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Bangladesh UNESCO National Commission and UNESCO Dhaka Office jointly organized this event.

Syed Manzoorul Islam, said that there is little scope of ideological education as the way education is being taught in Bangladesh job oriented .

An education in which memorization, taking and passing exams and finding a job after education becomes the main method, but that cannot help in establishing peace in the society or the country.

This education regulates coaching and note book business. So, it needs a transformation.


He also added that, he was told by many senior officials of the bank that he cannot find a good ‘communicator’. Senior managers from many countries who are called ‘super managers’ are coming to Bangladesh and working. As a result, huge amount of money being trafficked out of the country.

Education Minister Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury, who joined the discussion meeting virtually as a chief guest and State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Rumana Ali was the special guest in the function.

However, a large portion of the money that expatriate workers, who are working in the sun, getting wet with sweat, is going to the hands of those ‘super managers’.

Now specialist doctors are also coming to the hospital from outside the country. There will come a day when a good manager may have to go out with the booty. It is a shame that education could not produce such enlightened people.

Secondary and Higher Education Department Additional Secretary Khaleda Akter presided over the event. Bangladesh Accreditation Council member Professor Gulshan Ara Latifa, Primary and Mass Education Secretary Farid Ahmed, Technical and Madrasa Education Department Additional Secretary Aziz Taher Khan, UNESCO Dhaka Office Head Suzan Vaiz, Bangladesh UNESCO National Commission Deputy Secretary General Zubaida Mannan also spoke at the discussion meeting.
