We visited quite a few schools both in Dhaka and Sylhet and were mostly positively surprised by the fast pace of development, especially in the basic education. During the last day of our tour, we had a good discussion with the additional secretary of Ministry of Education in Bangladesh, Mr. Nazmul Haque Khan, and minister's private secretary, Mr. Awal Dewan. We were able to report about our observations and receive a special greeting from the minister, who was unfortunately abroad at the time. However, our local coordinator Mr. Hasan Ahmed did meet minister, Honorable Mr. Nurul Islam Nahid, one week later in Sylhet.
