From a leading youth correspondent of Sustaining Bangladeshi Villagers
over recent decades, Bangladesh has rightly been bringing movement in the society in the field of education, sanitation, vaccination, family planning, mother’s health etc.
Education: s few decades ago at villages, education was only for those who were rich; poor people normally were not sending their children to schools. This scenario has been shifting, especially with mobile empowerment throughout the last 20 years, because of a social movement led by the non-government organisations eg, BRAC & Grameen. Now even a rikshaw puller who earns less than $5 a day is happily spending one tenth of his monthly income to educate children. Now is time to change the colonial approaches of education into 21th century system as said by Sir Abed. More to do in the field of education especially on its quality. It is always easy to start from the scratch to seed a planned approach, rather than changing an established system. So it would be good to see if Sir Abed could bring an approach for quality education, then we would have a revolutionary change in the next coming decades in Bangladesh.  
Sanitation: 2 decades ago, most of villagers were not aware of sanitation that causes many diseases in the village and claimed thousands of lives every year in the very hot season. Now the situation is completely opposite – that means I can bet you that you will not find even a single open toilet walking through hundreds of villages in Bangladesh. Even my only sister died of diarrhoea/cholera at the age of 5 and it was a normal scenario then in the village. (Thanks to Premier Modi that he also launches initiative to bring social movement on sanitation in India now)
Vaccination: Bangladesh has been very successful in vaccination drive and now the people are very much aware that they go by themselves to the vaccination centre on the specific date with their kids for vaccine. Thus, we have now no epidemic in a scale as we saw 2 decades ago.
Family Planning and Mother’s Health: Bangladesh has been progressing to bring a social movement in these sectors and are close to a satisfactory level but still more to do in getting there.
When all these kinds of things happens together in any community, then poverty would gradually be alleviated as poverty is interlined with other social-economic factors.
Bangladesh has also developed a very good model of access to finance specially for the poor people to do any income-generating activities. If anyone wants to know more of any specific factors of Bangladesh reporting directly from the village ground of Bangladesh, please ask me.

From celebrations of global education summit in Korea.... Sir Fazle Abed (BRAC - home, fans) writes:

Beyond Universal Education DHAKA – As the World Education Forum meets in Incheon, South Korea, it is time to confront some unsettling facts about the state of education in the world today. More than 91% of children of primary school age are now enrolled in school, but progress on educating the remaining 9% has slowed to a near standstill. The numbers have barely moved since 2005, and girls are still disproportionately left behind.

Worse, the headline figures do not describe the true depth of the problem. In poorer countries, even children privileged enough to have access to a classroom often do not receive a good education. According to UNESCO, of some 650 million primary-school-age boys and girls, an estimated 250 million will not learn to read or count, regardless of whether they have gone to school.

Moreover, in many parts of the developing world, state school systems are leaving tens of millions of children behind because of poverty and discrimination. These children’s true education will be that of the soil or the streets. They will grow up working as smallholder farmers, sharecroppers, and wage laborers, and will struggle to send their own children to school
It is time for the United Nations and other international bodies to move beyond a singular focus on enrollment numbers and grapple with the problem of quality in education. In September, my organization, BRAC, joined a collaborative effort, led by Hillary Clinton and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, that puts more girls in school while addressing the problem of quality for both genders.
As part of that effort, BRAC, which is already the world’s largest private secular education provider, plans to invest at least $280 million to reach 2.7 million additional girls and train 75,000 teachers by 2019. We call on others to make similar investments.
All too often, poor countries’ approach to education remains stuck in the colonial era, favoring rote memorization over true learning. Schools do little to impart the life and work skills needed to prepare young people for the twenty-first-century knowledge economy. Children are awarded higher grades for writing sentences exactly like the ones they see in textbooks than for coming up with ideas of their own.
This is an approach that fails to foster curiosity, self-confidence, and independent thinking. It is also especially ill-suited for children from poor backgrounds, who find much of what they are taught in the classroom to be irrelevant to their daily lives.
I was pleased when, in May, a panel tasked by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon came up with a post-2015 development agenda that included quality education, not just universal access, as one of its recommendations. Setting targets based on quality rather than quantity will be difficult but not impossible.
Basic outcomes of literacy and numeracy are imperative. But so are standards for social and emotional learning, which stresses the importance of recognizing our emotions, learning how to deal with them, and fostering empathy for others. These skills, known as “emotional intelligence,” are just as important for children in poor countries as they are for children in rich countries.
In conflict and post-conflict environments like Afghanistan or South Sudan, a safe and peaceful future will depend on a new generation being able to heal its emotional and psychological wounds, just as it did in my native Bangladesh after our Liberation War in 1971. Even in countries not scarred by war, navigating one’s way out poverty requires emotional intelligence, in addition to problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
Given recent cuts in aid for education, some might object that focusing on quality and emotional intelligence are luxuries that we cannot afford. This is not the case. In Bangladesh, we have found a way to bring quality education to the poor, with schools that cost just $36 per student per year. With community support, local women are trained to teach children to think for themselves. One-room schools operate out of rented and borrowed spaces to save costs. A majority of the students in every classroom are girls.
We need to promote universal standards for education, not just universal access, for both girls and boys. A child’s potential is truly unleashed only when he or she learns to spot and seize the opportunities that his or her parents never had. This is the standard we should set, and it will be a great moment indeed when it is universally adopted.
