I have given new books as experimental editions: Education Minister. Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni said, “To go through new educational activities, you have to go through a lot of experiments. We’re still at that stage. Last year, we ran these (new books given this year) in 62 secondary schools across the country. I got a great response. I have received a positive response from teachers, parents, and students. But even then this year, we have given these new books as experimental editions in all our institutions (33,000 secondary schools).
He said this while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion on ‘What the student community should do to face the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution in the 21st century and build a smart Bangladesh’ at 11 am on Saturday (January 14). Vice-Chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Digital University Professor Dr. Muhammad Mahfuzul Islam was present as the chief discussant.
“We will constantly take feedback from students, teachers, parents, and educationists and refine them throughout the year,” she said. So this time the books that have been given in the sixth, seventh and first grades may be wrong in the books, some people may be uncomfortable and object to the topics included in the books. You’ll let us know. We will revise them next year and make the rest of the class books in that light.
