In a bid to stop the further spread of coronavirus the Ministry of Education has decided to extend the shutdown of schools and colleges across Bangladesh till August 6.

Primary and Mass Education Secretary Md Akram-al-Hossainon said to Fintech today, “The existing closure of schools and colleges across the country will be extended till August 6 thinking the safety of our children. And we will sit with the Education Ministry to finalize everything. We will issue and order soon.”

Summer vacation and Eid-ul-Azha holidays will coincide with the closure, he added.

However, the government started TV education through Sangsad TV for secondary students on March 29, for primary students on April 7, and for technical and madrassa students on April 19, so that students can make up for some of the losses due to closure of the educational institutions.
