Quality education must be ensured
The paramount target of education should not be confined in getting "GPA-5" rather it should exigently emphasize on the quality and standard. But in recent time, most of the students, their parents and even some teachers solely put more emphasis on the results (GPA-5), overriding the quality of education.
As a consequence, many GPA-5 holders are being generated at the very beginning of the stage but they are not surviving at the higher education level. Whenever a student obtains brighter result than he or she deserves, the expectation of his or her parents and dearest persons goes higher. They start dreaming about their sons or daughters but the son or daughter can't bring the desired outcome as they lack sound knowledge. Thus they make their stakeholders dusky in the long run.
Thousands of students get GPA-5 in SSC and HSC examinations every year but very few students get chance in well-reputed universities, which are making us think about the future prospect of these students. So, it is high time; we have to be united to ensure the quality of education. Because our nation will not prosper until and unless quality education is fully materialised.
