Shuja Bhai,

I hope you don't mind me resurrecting your old thread. One thing I have noticed in my annual Dhaka trips is the proliferation of private tutors and coaching centers. Now, by itself, this is not necessarily a bad thing -- I too, earned some spare cash as a private tutor when I was in school.

What concerns me though, are reports that I hear of teachers in public and private schools intentionally doing a terrible job of teaching the syllabus in schools, and expecting students to come to them for private coaching in order to do well in SSCs or O- and A-levels. If this is indeed true (BC members in Bangladesh, do feel free to confirm or deny), perhaps we should see if we can put pressure on our Education Ministry to try to curb such practices.
