Education Minister Dipu Moni says that some guides and notebook printing companies are immorally tempted by the teachers of some educational institutions. They force students to buy these notes and guides. The Education Minister sought the cooperation of the district administration to close these notes and guides.

The minister said this while addressing at a press conference in the Secretariat on Thursday.

The press conference was organized to announce the 'Dhaka Declaration' of the International Conference on Skills in a joint venture organized by the Institute of Diploma Engineers and Colombo Plan Staff College. The conference took place in Dhaka from 2 to 4 February. The Dhaka Declaration of the Conference emphasizes on quality technical education.

Responding to reporters' questions, the education minister said, "We want to stop the use of guides and notebooks. They don't even need to be in a creative education method. It is not possible for the Education Ministry alone to close this trend. Helps are needed from everyone.”

Responding to reporters' questions about the error in distributing question papers in the ongoing SSC and equivalent examinations, the Education Minister said, "It is negligible as a number." But why?

Reassuring the students, the education minister said that these answers were kept separately. The measures will be taken so that the students do not suffer.

It is alleged that one of the questions in this SSC exam has been asked from the notebook. In this regard, the education minister said, who has done it, has been identified. They are looking at the matter.

Responding to another question, the Education Minister said that the appointment of more than 7,000 teachers for the government technical education process is in progress. Since this appointment is made through the Public Service Commission, it may take a year or more for that to happen.

Deputy Speaker Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury, AKM Hamid, President of the Institute of Diploma Engineers, addressed at the press conference.
