According to BBS data, the rate of out-of-school population has decreased very slightly compared to 2022. However, this rate is still much higher than before Corona. Just before the epidemic in 2019, the rate of people not in formal education program in the country was 29.27. Accordingly, the rate of out-of-school population has increased by about 11 percentage points in the last 5 years.

Alamgir Hossain, Director of the Sample Vital Registration System Project, said that the educational age of people is usually 5 to 24 years. At this time any person is supposed to be in education from pre-primary to higher education. Among people in this age group, the number of people who never went to school or who dropped out of school is shown.

Experts say that a large number of students have moved away from studies due to the corona epidemic and various socio-economic reasons. The situation has not improved much in the last two years. Government needs to take effective steps to bring back out-of-school students.
