Welcome to Ministry of Primary and Mass Education

Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education (MoPME) of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. MoPME is mainly responsible for policy formulation, supervision, planning, monitoring and evaluation and initiating legislative measures relating to primary and non-formal education. Bangladesh has been trying relentlessly to uphold the cause of education for all since its emergence as an independent country. Article 17 of the Constitution of Bangladesh stipulates that primary education shall be the responsibility of the State. To bear this responsibility primary education in Bangladesh underwent a great deal of changes and development during the last decades. Bangladesh is a signatory to the World Declaration on Education for All (EFA) held at Jomtien, Thailand in March 1990. Bangladesh is also a signatory to the Summit of 9 high Population Countries held on 16 December 1993 in Delhi. Bangladesh participated in the World Education Forum meeting held in Senegal, Dakar in April 2000. The Government enacted Compulsory Primary Education Act in 1990, created a separate Primary and Mass Education Division (PMED) in 1992, introduced compulsory primary education programme in 68 Upazilas in 1992 and expanded this programme all over the country in 1993. The country has formulated National Plan of Action I and II to realize the goals of Education for All. The country has also prepared a Non-formal Education Policy. The PMED was made a Ministry in 2003. Mr. Advocate Mostafizur Rahman, M.P is the Hon’ble Minister  for the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education.
