Education, governance & empowerment are the key elements for development in a developing country like Bangladesh. Eminence, keeping that in mind, has focused on the improvement and provide education for all groups of population in the community, focusing towards good governance and empowerment of the most vulnerable groups of communities.
The foundation of the educational system in Bangladesh was laid down during the period of British rule. The system has three levels—primary, secondary, and higher education. Primary and secondary education both are compulsory, though universal participation has remained more an ideal than a fact. According to UNICEF Bangladesh, in 2011, fewer than 1 in 2 boys and barely 1 in 3 girls who completed primary education were functionally literate. But even though primary enrolment is at 98%, only 67% qualify for secondary education, and even less, 22%, reach higher secondary level. Bangladesh’s literacy rate for 2019 was 74.68%, a 0.77% increase from 2018. For vocational training, Bangladesh relies on several engineering colleges and a network of polytechnic and law colleges. In addition, an array of specialized colleges is dedicated to training students in areas such as the arts, home economics, social welfare and research, and various aspects of agriculture.
Bangladesh is one of the more successful developing countries in terms of accelerating growth, making growth pro-poor, and improving the indicators of social progress. Over the past 10 years, the country has also managed to make progress in governance indicators; however global indicators suggest that improving governance should remain a key priority for the full realization of development aspirations. The country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew at an average of 6% a year in the last decade, but recent work on the potential for economic growth indicates that 7.5 percent or higher would be needed for Bangladesh to be a middle-income country by 2021.
