Abstract

Since independence, the education policy of successive governments has focused on improving and extending primary education and providing opportunities for Education for All (EFA). Primary education was made free and compulsory for all children between the ages of 6 and 10 in 1991 and Bangladesh currently has one of the largest primary education systems in the world. In 2000, there were 76,600 primary schools in Bangladesh and gross enrolment in primary education reached over 96%. Net enrolment is estimated by the Directorate of Primary Education to be around 80%.
