Abstract

The Open School (OS) of Bangladesh Open University (BOU) runs three pre-University programs namely Junior School Certificate (JSC) for Grade 6-8, Secondary School Certificate (SSC) for Grade 9-10, and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) for grade 11-12 through open and distance learning (ODL) mode. Management of these programs is highly influenced by the government policy particularly at the time of political change in Bangladesh. Normally, formal school syllabus and curriculum are subject to change as per the wills of the current government although BOUOS has the autonomy to design its curriculum. This change affects total management of open school because BOU Open School also maintains the curriculum for its school programs which is at par to the formal curriculum. This discusses the dynamics of open school management at the time of educational policy change in Bangladesh.
