Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said, the government is considering launching “Shikkha TV” (Education TV), a dedicated channel to broadcast lectures of teachers from renowned educational institutions.

The minister made the disclosure while talking to newsmen at the Secretariat, after attending a session of the Deputy Commissioners’ Conference on Monday, reports BSS.

On the second day of the conference, the DCs suggested taking measures to hold special classes in the schools located in the country’s remote areas, and bringing guest teachers from reputed educational institutions.

“We told the DCs during the meeting that we could broadcast the lectures of teachers of reputed institutions through television at a cheaper cost, and reach those to these schools located in remote areas,” Dipu Moni said.

“That is why the government is considering introducing an education TV (Shikkha TV). If the TV channel is launched, the teachers of rural schools will also get benefited as they could learn new teaching methods,” she added. 

The education minister said, the DCs were asked to create public awareness against sexual harassment of students in their respective districts.

She said students must be reared up with moral, and human values from primary level, so that they could become good citizens, and good human beings.

During the meeting, Dipu Moni said they discussed sealing off coaching centres, stopping notebooks, and guidebooks business, and infrastructural development in educational institutions.
