Dipu Moni made the remarks while talking to reporters at Secretariat after attending a session of the Deputy Commissioners’ (DC) Conference on the Education Ministry. Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury Nowfel was also present at that time.  

Earlier, on the second day of the conference, the DCs suggested taking measurers to hold special classes in the schools located in the country’s marginal areas and hiring guest teachers from reputed educational institutions.

The minister said, “We told the DCs during the meeting that we could broadcast the lectures of teachers of reputed institutions through television in a cheaper cost and reach those to these schools located in remote areas.”

The minister also asked the DCs to take measures for stopping coaching business and publishing illegal note and guidebooks.

During the second-day conference, they have also been asked to ensure the quality of construction work of their school buildings and ensure adequate playground on their school premises.

Dipu Moni also said the DCs were asked to create public awareness against sexual harassment of students in their respective districts.
