Effort towards a Private Higher Education Law


The Bangladesh government has decided to form an accreditation council as an educational watchdog to ensure quality education in its 53 privately-run universities. The Education Minister said an effort would be made to introduce a Private University Law based on the accreditation council's report. The major concern, as expressed by the minister, is to establish systems to maintain standards in the private universities because questions have been raised about that.

For more detail, please see Efforts to be taken to introduce Private University Law: Bangladesh Education Minister, Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS), National News Agency of Bangladesh, September 14, 2004; and an editorial Has education become a commodity? The Financial Express, September 28, 2004.
