The word “change” has become very popular since the election of USA and Bangladesh. Both President Barack Obama and our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina emphasized on this word “change” and the word “change” afterwards became so powerful that it was inevitable that this “change” was going to get the victory. As a result, USA has seen their first black President and we have our old Prime Minister but with new dreams; dreams of “change”, though there is always a doubt whether there was or is any “change” (in broader sense). We have been planning to change and this planning will never end. Now I believe the time has come to do some work.
I am from an English medium background and I feel both lucky and shy for that! I feel lucky when my friends say to me after their SSC exam, “Dude! The entire math paper was common; I could have scored hundred if I have just seen the notes a little more the night before!” I feel shy when I find out myself sitting for O’Levels under a British board in my own country! However, according to my understanding the first thing the government needs to change is the educational system of our country. Not only changing it but also bringing the quality up to such a level so that we do not have to look for any alien board! This will obviously grow patriotism among the next generation as this quality is almost absent among a large number of students. Moreover, as we know education is the backbone of a nation. Surely, we can then expect the next generation will form the backbone based on which the country can stand straight. So let us now blow the winds of change and let it hit the educational system first!
