Education

 

Public education in Bangladesh generally follows the model established by the British prior to 1947. Primary school education is free, but at least one-third of all children are not enrolled in school. Poor school attendance is a major reason for a literacy rate of only 35 per cent for Bangladeshis aged 15 and older. In the period 1990 to 1991, the country had about 48,140 primary schools, with a total annual enrolment of some 13 million pupils, and about 9,700 secondary schools, with a combined yearly enrolment of about 3.6 million.

Bangladesh has several universities, the largest of which is the University of Dhaka (1921). Others include Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (1962) and Jahangirnagar University (1970), both in Dhaka; the Bangladesh Agricultural University (1961) in Mymensingh; the University of Chittagong (1966); and the University of Rajshahi (1953). Colleges include the Bangladesh College of Textile Technology (1950) in Dhaka, and the Chittagong Polytechnic Institute (1962). In the period 1990 to 1991, the country's colleges and universities together enrolled more than 767,000 students.
