Educational institutions to be reopened soon: Minister

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Wednesday (Feb 10) said all the educational institutes will be reopened as soon as possible and that’s why priority basis vaccination programme is underway for teachers and students.

“Vaccination programme is being carried out under priority basis for the teachers and it is also planned for students... then no barriers will remain to reopening the educational institutions,” she told the virtual Vice-Chancellor award distribution ceremony in Dhaka, local media reported.

“We were forced to shut down the educational institutions across the country for long time due to coronavirus pandemic, the minister said, adding, “we have a plan to reopen these soon.”

Chaired by National University Vice Chancellor Dr Harun Ar Rashid, Deputy Minister for Education Mahibul Hasan Chowdhury and University Grants Commission Chairman Professor Dr Kazi Shahidullah also joined the virtual programme.
