Information should
be accurate
It is a matter of concern that academic curricula and contents in Bangladesh are frequently changed each year. Different textbooks contain different versions of the same information. For example, events of the liberation war are presented in different lights under each new government. How are students supposed to know which version of the events to believe?
Instead of frequently changing the syllabi, the NCTB ought to focus on publishing textbooks with correct and consistent information. That is the only way our children will acquire proper knowledge.
