British ruler from 1760 to 1860 destroys all. Again, with the private effort Bangladeshi education system starts to grow. After final freedom of 1971 Bangladesh government starts it for all citizens. Now Bangladesh educational system is three-tiered and highly subsidized. The government of Bangladesh operates many schools in the primary and secondary levels. It also subsidizes parts of the funding for many private schools. In the tertiary education sector, the government also funds state universities. It also has many non-subsidized private universities. Bangladesh conforms fully to the Education ForAll (EFA) objectives, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and international declarations.
