Impact of Food for Education Programme: A Review FMRSP

Working Paper
Working Paper No. 19

The government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh is committed towards the goal set for "Education for All". According to the constitution, primary education is given the highest priority and shall be the responsibility of the state. Accordingly, in 1972, the Qudrat-e-Khuda Edcation Commission was set up to create a modern education system suited to the needs of an independent nation and compatible with the systems of the neighboring countries. The Commission in its report in 1974 outlined a number of objectives for primary education and placed a few recommendations before the government for the development of primary education in the country. Unfortunately, most of the recommendations of the Commission remained unimplemented. However, the government nationalized 36,165 primary schools in 1973 and declared 1,57,724 teachers of those schools as government employees. From then on, strengthening and improving primary education management became a part of the state's responsibility and planned steps were taken for the development of primary education.
