On the first declaration of the result, all were excited. The students expressed joy, teachers felt recognized, schools honoured, the parents took pride and the minister took it as a success of their policy.
What is the utility of this result? It is good that a large number of students got good marks but what is beyond. It could differentiate little among 42,000 students who got GPA 5. They are of same colour. (more…)

SSC result reflecting disparity between the rich and poor, city and rural students, Government should find out ways to diminish the gap.
There may be many conventional suggestions such as
a) Improving the standard of the schools,
b) rotating the teachers among the schools at regular intervals,
c) closing the gap between private and public schools,
d) restricting the admission on regional basis,
e) supporting the rural schools in a better way,
f) supplying the necessary equipments to the rural schools,
g) arranging better training for the teachers,
h) improving the salary of the teachers,
i) better monitoring of the school activities,
j) improving the infrastructures of the schools,
k) rearranging the governing bodies of the schools
l) Decreasing the political interference on school activities etc.
But use of technology seems to me more important to me. Every School should be furnished with computers and internet should be established. So that pupils and the teachers can utilize it for teaching purposes.
The Government should take initiative to develop tutorials on the basis of curriculum on different subjects and distribute it to different schools. Internet can be used to develop web pages as a teaching tool and with facilities to download and print out the educational materials by all irrespective of the distance from the capital.
Right to learn is universal for all children. Opportunity to learn should be equal to all. The talents remain hidden in the poor. They should be nourished to bloom. From American President Abraham Lincon to Indian President Abdul Kalam, almost all genius born in a poor background. Who knows, the birth of such a genius may change the fate of our country one day.
SSC Result: error at programming level? June 22, 2007Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH, EDUCATION, SSC.

The SSC result of 9 Education Boards was published simultaneously in the internet on 12th June, 2007. But later on it was found that due to mistakes 95 thousand students were placed in the higher grade and 50 students were wrongly given GPA 5.
It would be a shock to those students who later on came to the reality that they were placed in the higher group mistakenly.
Imagine the emotion of those students at that moment. Or imagine the state of mind of those students who found themselves in GPA 5 group whose happiness were shattered later on. And you see, none would feel secure once they heard the news of the mistake and could tally the result with the corrected one.
Many questions would come up. Why this happen? Who are responsible for this error? Was it a deliberate mistake? Was the result manipulated? Who are responsible for this? Has any one taken the responsibility? Has anyone resigned? Did Government institute any inquiry? Is it progressing? What is the finding of the enquiry? Who was found guilty ? What punishment s are going to be imposed? What steps Government is taking to prevent such occurrences in future?
The Government should make an enquiry to find out the underlying cause of the error and give necessary punishment to those involved or remove those officials whose inefficiency led to this mistake. The error also degrades the confidence over the computer result of our public examinations.
There is a probability that the programming for the compilation of the result was not perfect. But why the programming would be so poor with which the accuracy of the result, the integrity of the authority, confidence over the system and image of the Government are also involved. The progrmming should be made by the best experts and the security should be tested beyond doudt before it is utilised.
So Government should take necessary measures at all levels to prevent the recurrence of this sort of unacceptable mistakes in future.
