Poverty and Education With Particular Reference To Bangladesh

‘Poverty and Education with Particular Reference to Bangladesh’ is in fact a revised version of the Keynote Address presented by Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, President, Bangladesh Economic Association and Chairman, Bangladesh Unnayan Parishad at the Seminar on ‘Poverty and Education’ organized by Campaign for Popular Education (CAMPE) on 13 July 2005. The objective of the seminar was to identify the links between poverty and education with a view to pinpoint problems and prospects in increasing poor people’s access to education and to get pragmatic directions for overcoming those constraints. It is for the richness of facts and figures and insights into the facets of poverty and illiteracy that CAMPE felt inspired to publish the Keynote Address in a booklet form.
