The Ministry of Education has issued a latest decree, according to which the parent will be fined BD100 if the student consistently fails to attend classes over a period of 10 days.

“It is the duty of the parents to ensure that their kids are attending classes on a regular basis,” the ministry said while issuing the decree.

The move follows many students flouting minimum attendance norms to be maintained at classes in the absence of strict regulations.

“The parents of students not maintaining the mandatory minimum attendance during an academic session will be fined BD100. The parents will also have to explain the reason behind the leaves to the ministry. The move intends at discouraging students from taking unnecessary leaves,” the ministry said in its statement.
