Govt stressing on technical education, says Nahid


PV Desk : Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid today said the government is giving importance on technical education to turn the country’s huge population into skilled manpower.

“We have to transform the huge population into skilled manpower. The government is stressing on technical education to achieve this target,” the minister said while inaugurating a new building of Zamsed Ahmed High School at Beanibazar upazila here.

“Higher education is not only for getting a certificate, but also for acquiring knowledge,” Nahid said, adding that a big change should be brought in the education system.

Education should not be confined to classrooms, the minister said and urged the new generation to get ready for taking the country forward.

“We will not remain the importer of knowledge and technologies from abroad forever, rather our world standard meritorious new generation will export these in near future,” he added.
