Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Friday student politics should be established as model of values and knowledge as politics would be knowledge-based in the coming days.
He was addressing a seminar arranged by AL Education and Human Resource Affairs Sub-Committee titled "Education: Realistic Strategy for Achieving Targets of 2041" marking Education Day at AL's Bangabandhu Avenue central office joining it virtually.
He said student leaders now don't arrange any seminar on education or problems of education or their campuses; even student organizations don't organize any seminar on significance of Education Day now.
If the current trend continues, the glory of student organizations will be lost, he said.
The minister underscored the need for taking up new strategies to enhance the standard of education on the basis of proper research.
He said the quality of teachers should be enhanced through imparting proper training to them side by side with enhancing the standard of education.
Merits should be evaluated in providing post to anybody in any student organizations, he said.
