Every Day Life 12 April 2015 Students of Dhaka University’s Institute of Fine Arts on Sunday prepare to celebrate Pahela Boishakh, the first day of Bangla calendar, on Apr 14. Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, the renowned grandson of Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur, the 3rd Mughal Emperor, introduced the Bangali Calender. For relatively easier tax collection, Akbar changed the practice of agricultural tax collection according to the Hijri calendar. He ordered an improvement because the Hijri calendar, being lunar, did not agree with the harvest sessions and eventually the farmers faced severe difficulties in paying taxes out of season.Photo by Monirul Alam @meghmonir

The Spirit of School | Bangladesh | Work in Progress . . .

In the story, a popular Bangladeshi comic character called Meena (girl), desire for an education but initially has to stay at home to help with the housework. But by the end of the story, Meena’s relatives realize the value of education and the earnest young girl heads to school with her younger brother. The focus on education is evident among policymakers across Bangladesh who are taking measures to achieve a 100 per cent literacy rate within the next decade.

As per the latest literacy survey report of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS), the country’s literacy rate of the population aged above 15 reached 59.82 per cent while the illiteracy rate is 40.18 and the literacy of women is 55.71 per cent.

The education system and structure of Bangladesh has three major stages-primary, secondary and higher educations. Primary education is a 5-year cycle while secondary education is a 7- year one with three sub-stages: 3 years of junior secondary, 2 years of secondary and 2 years of higher secondary. The private schools also receive strong financial support from the state. The tertiary education (3-5 years) is provided through universities (31 public and 51 private universities) and affiliated colleges under supervision of University Grants Commission. Establishment of private universities has gained momentum in recent years. At all levels, students can choose the medium of education from Bangla or English.

The constitution is the fundamental law of the country it serves as a framework of all others laws. According to the Bangladesh Constitution article 17 Free and compulsory education. The State shall adopt effective measures for the purpose of –

a) establishing a uniform, mass-oriented and universal system of education and extending free and compulsory education to all children to such stage as may be determined by law; b) relating education to the needs of society and producing properly trained and motivated citizens to serve those needs; removing illiteracy within such time as may be determined by law.

This project was a challenge for me as I had to document the subject in a different way than I did before and continue in upcoming days. I feel this challenge has taken the whole project to a new level.
