Thinking about education is thinking about the future

The old adage that education is the backbone of a nation exists for a reason: How much a country invests in its education sector and the methods utilized to provide quality education to its children remains of the utmost importance when it comes to the sustainability of the nation. 

In this regard, we find Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni’s words encouraging -- one of the ways in which the government plans to tackle problems within the education sector is by improving the way teachers are trained to do their jobs. 

Unfortunately, at this point in time, we do not have the infrastructure in place to ensure that the teachers entering our schools receive the proper training with which to best mould the minds who will one day contribute to this nation’s growth in the future. 

Thankfully, this is also on the government’s agenda, and with an increasing focus on technical education -- which has jumped from a mere 1% in 2009 to around 15% currently -- we can create a form of education that not only contributes to the future prosperity of Bangladesh, but is also inclusive of the various socio-economic classes which make up the nation’s population.

At the end of the day, thinking about education is thinking about the future. By focusing on our children, and being diverse in our approach, we can build a nation that is truly ready to tackle any challenge, and increase the efficiency with which we reach middle-income status.
