Rethink education policies
Educational leaders need to adopt a policy shift. They were far too focused on achieving business degrees. Instead we have to focus for engineering so more students had the option to diversify. In Bangladesh the physical constraints of degree options create a barrier for expanding into developing future-relevant skills.
We are heavily invested in having physical presence in stone and mortar classrooms. In the case of classrooms being a physical barrier at times, classrooms may or may not exist soon in the future of digital education. Are classrooms really needed? Impact of digital transformation is more relevant in higher education where degrees are often treated simply as markers for hiring. Yet, there appear no direct correlation between having a degree and achieving a level of success. Therefore we have to rethink our education policies.
