Highlighting the integral nature of knowledge of computer usage to education, the Bangla Government has decided to start compulsory computer education classes from the first standard in all government and government-sponsored schools. The classes will be held at least till the secondary level.
To implement this decision, computer would be bought for over 65,000 schools. A maximum of four computers would be bought for a school having 50 students, and a proportionate number for those having more. An adequate number of teachers would also be recruited.
The syllabus committee of the State Government has already started work on the matter.
Computers would help make the lessons qualitatively much more interesting to students, according to the chairman of the syllabus committee. Besides the science subjects and geography, efforts are on to make literature too teachable using computers.
