The World Bank approved $700 million to improve the primary education sector in Bangladesh.

The World Bank (WB) approved $700 million to improve the primary education sector in Bangladesh. The new fund will help implementation of the government’s Fourth Primary Education Development Programme (PEDP4), according to a WB press release issued in Washington D.C. on Thursday.

According to the WB, the programme will bring about one million out-of-school children to learning centers that would follow the national curriculum, and thus help them integrate with the formal education system. It will also build about 95,000 classrooms, teachers’ rooms, and multipurpose rooms to ensure international standard students-to-classroom ratio.

Besides, it will also build 80,000 water and sanitation blocks and 15,000 safe water sources with special emphasis on facilities for girl students and female teachers. It will also recruit and provide training to about 100,000 teachers, reports BSS.

WB further said that the programme will help improve quality and equitable access to primary education. It will help assess and improve learning outcomes for Bangla and mathematics for Grade 3 students.

For this, the programme will develop a stronger curriculum and exam system as well as textbooks and supplementary learning materials, including digital materials. It will also help the expansion of one-year quality pre-primary education in all government schools.
