Since 2007, Bangladesh education sector has developed with foreign investors opening education centres in Dhaka. This has allowed the education sector to build relations with overseas education centres. The London School of Commerce opened an branch in Bangladesh, for Bangladesh honours students to remain in Bangladesh and get an Bachelors degree from a UK university.
The internet developed with the Bangladesh starting the Digital Bangladesh project to improve the country internet connection. With the changes happening in Bangladesh the education specification remains the same. When the country social economics changes, consumers demands change this means the education sector should change in order to meet the student requirements. The introduction of Outcome Based Learning needs to be presented to the students.
In June 2020, Bangladesh Government allocated BDT664bn for the education sector Budget. The was 2.1% of the country GDP rate. The University Grant Scheme has an target to persuade the Government to increase the budget to 4.2% to make further developments. Bangladesh have worked on projects to develop the economy with the Public Private Partnership Organisation formed in 2012. In 2008, Bangladesh Government started the Project Digital Bangladesh to improve the country digitalised infrastructure.
Students in primary and secondary school determines Bangladesh education prospects. With the increased rate in child labour, students end up working from the early age because the education specification requires commitment and dedication comparison to the developed economies specification. With the students in poverty line from early age, students in junior and early secondary know the realities of struggle from an early age.
The Bangladesh education syllabus remains to be in line with the traditional education. The traditional education is when students are only dependent on the teachers classroom lecturers, classroom notes and memorising an book. During the exam, their grades will determine the progression. With the changes in the education sector, Bangladesh Education department should consider adapting to a modernised education specification.
In the developed economies there are specification help students to develop skills in communication, problem solving and ICT skills. With the skills developed students will be able to progress and develop skills required in the work environment. In the recent years, graduates completing education with no work experience are in major disadvantages. In Bangladesh, the are graduates who have failed to find graduate work due to not developing work skills while studying at the university. The years when the country maximises in numbers of honours graduates, this will cause the unemployment rate to increase.
With the graduates failing to find employment and Bangladesh target is to be an middle income country by 2030 changes will need to happen. The first change needed to happen it to change the tradition education specification. Modernised and update the academic specification in line with the changes in social economics. Ensure the specification develop work skills combined with academic knowledge.
