‘Teachers should refrain from turning edn to business’

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

Education Minister Dipu Moni said teachers should refrain from making education as business. While speaking as the chief guest at the fifth convocation of International University of Business Agriculture and Technology (IUBAT) at Uttara in the capital, she said, “Education and education as business cannot go hand in hand and it should be stopped immediately.”

“We regard the spread of knowledge as a noble task of our heritage. So the teachers in the society are persons of reverence and adoration. But recently some tasks and avarice for money of some teachers are threatening the heritage, which has disappointed us. We have to bear in mind, honour is better than money. So it is undesirable to make education a trade,” she said on Thursday.

Dr Abul Kalam Azad Chowdhury, former vice chancellor of Dhaka University, was the convocation speaker, while Imdadul Haq Milan, editor of bangla daily Kaler Kantho, was present as special guest. IUBAT Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Abdur Rab presided over the convocation. About the quality of education, Dipu Moni said, “Bangladesh has witnessed a massive development in education in the last ten years under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Now, time has come to improve the quality of education to keep pace with the world. Highest priority must be given to quality and technical education.”

A total of 6,803 graduate students have been conferred degrees.
