Plan underway for education TV channel: BD Minister

Dhaka, July 15 (UNB) – A plan is underway to launch an education TV channel to air all the good classes of good teachers, taking the benefits to rural students, said Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni.

“We can show the good classes of good teachers of various schools through the TV channel simultaneously,” she said while replying to queries of reporters after the third session of the second-day DCs’ conference at the secretariat here on Monday.

The minister said there are many very good schools in Dhaka and elsewhere, and there is a proposal to take their good teachers to various places of the country as guest teachers.

“To make that happen, we’re thinking whether an education TV channel can be launched through which the teachers in remote areas will also be benefitted from the learning techniques of good schools,” Dipu Moni said.

About coaching business, the Education Minister said the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) can help the government stop this business and end the culture of guidebooks.

She said the DCs were asked to ensure the formation of education committees at district level like the ones formed at the upazila level.

Referring to the sexual harassment of students, the minister also said there must be vigilance everywhere so that the students are not abused sexually.
