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 has been published and I have come across a news that the students with poor socioeconomic background are doing bad. Students with more affluent background are coming out with more success.
One of the main reasons is that for better result students have to depend on tutor support beyond school which the poorer class cannot afford. The affluent class is engaging one or more home tutors for their children.
They are also taking advantage also to admit their children in better schools of the city.
The poorer sections are clumped together in the other schools where teaching facilities are substandard than the required level. Forget about the poor private sponsored /city corporation schools, even in Government schools in the city the no of students in a class is beyond a teachers capability. How he teach 100 students in a class where it is heardly possible to reach one’s voice beyond 50 students. There are also problem in students teachers ratio, opportunity for developing of one’s attribute etc. The teachers of these school are engaged in tuition and coaching beyond office hour. So they remain less serious about their responsibility in classes. So the poor are affected in many ways.
The scenario in rural Bangladesh is more pathetic. The no of school is less, the good schools are scarce, good and dedicated teachers are unavailable, the school are ill equipped, no good teacher for English and Science etc.
The Government has the responsibility to provide equal opportunity for education for all children – the poor and the rich, children of the city or the village.
The Government should review our secondary education system and find out more pragmatic solution for all and create atmosphere where the talents of the poor can flourish, the poor do not remain poor because of his background.
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.
