TOWARDS A NORMATIVE LEGAL MECHANISM OF A UNITARY PRIMARY EDUCATION IN BANGLADESH
Shadika Haque Monia
The Constitution of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh ensures the right to education under Article 17. From the liberation war of 1971 till 2020, the country has been developed its primary education system. Besides, there is no unitary idea or meaning of primary education in Bangladesh. To protect the nation from the diversity of primary education, the National Education Policy 2010 has set some common goals and primary education objectives. But the attempt of enacting education law is not completed even today. As a result, many activities in implementing education policy are being hampered. In the absence of a specific legal mechanism in the same arena, the ‘National Education policy’ has not been appropriately implemented. The research endeavors to discuss present education policy, the unitary concept of education, and the importance of adopting specific rules and regulations within the Education Act. The research also aims to analyze the unitary idea of primary education and the extent to which Bangladesh needs a specific legal mechanism to ensure unitary primary education. The scope of this research is restricted to the study of state practice of Bangladesh.
