RTNN News Desk: Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid has said that the government has decided to raise primary education level up to class VIII.

The minister said this while taking to the journalists after a meeting at the Secretariat in the city on Wednesday.


“We’ve decided to extend the primary level up to class VIII and a summary of the decision will be sent to the Prime Minister soon” said Nahid.

The activities up to class eight will come under Primary and Mass Education Ministry. This is a one-of-its-kind decision in the history of the country’s education system, Nahid said.


Replying to a query whether the students will sit for both the PSC and JSC examinations, Nahid said, “There has been no decision yet in this regard and the Primary and Mass Education Ministry will take the decision later.”


Primary and Mass Education Minister Mostafizur Rahman, Dhaka University Vice Chancellor AAMS Arefin Siddique, Dr Khaliquzzaman and high officials concerned of the ministry were, among others, present at the meeting held with Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid in the chair.
