This is a tale of how a medical technology was adapted, revised and presented to ad illiterate public through house-to-house health education by a small army of dedicated health workers. Through a decade of persistent work, the entire BRAC organization initiated this ambitious programme, and inspite of all skepticism from the global public health community, carried the science of oral therapy into every home in Bangladesh. Never before, or since, has a public health effort of this intensity been tried.

The development history of Bangladesh is marked by fluctuations, turn-abouts and decelerations. To understand these complex dynamics of social and economic change towards finding solutions, we need to dig for historical knowledge. Francis Buchanan's account is the earliest and the most significant source of new information of 18th Century Bengal, Arakan, Tripura, Cachar, Manipur, Mizoram and Burma (Myanmar).

In mid-nineteenth century, Devon and Suffolk were both agricultural counties and yet the level of literacy differed considerably between them. This book undertakes an investigation of literacy both between and within the two counties and in the process attempts to resolve why Devon was so much more literate than Suffolk. This study of the complicated set of causes for the growth of literacy breaks new ground in a great contemporary importance. Although it gives few conclusive answers it does demonstrate how this neglected subject of literacy should be done in the future.

Human capital formation is the sine qua non for improvement in the lives of people. Bangladesh has not performed to the best of its potential in developing this capital and remain a country where illiteracy is rampant. The Constitution of the country enshrines the right of the child to free and compulsory primary education. In recent times, a number of interventions have been made in public, private and NGO sectors to attain the goal of universal primary education. However, no sector has invested enough in monitoring the progress towards the desired goal.

Over half of the World's absolute poor, who also happen to be half of the world's illiterates, are concentrated in South Asia. The history of industrialized countries unambiguously teach us that quality primary education for all children is an essential condition for a nation to move out of the vicious cycle of poverty and illiteracy. The lessons of history have been recognized by Bangladesh. This book tells the story of primary education in Bangladesh.

About 18 million of Bangladesh's 130 million population, are in the primary school age (6-10 years) group. Nearly 80 percent of these children are now attending school. Some studies have raised questions about the quality of education imparted in the schools. This report presents results from a new study that looks at the quality aspect more comprehensively. It is done for both formal and non-formal sub-systems by (i) assessing students completing the primary cycle against a set of terminal competencies recommended by the government and (ii) by studying the state of teacher education.

The book begins with a broad overview of the current education scene—from primary to tertiary education. The need to cultivate a culture of research in the higher education institutions (HEIs) that is contextually important and relevant is also emphasized. Two specific aspects of women’s (and, girls’) education in Bangladesh suggest the importance of educating women.
