With its huge population in search of socioeconomic betterment and a rightful place in the global community, Bangladesh is likely to face many challenges and remains grateful for many success stories in the field of education. While its governmental and nongovernmental agencies are busily refining the methods for educating huge masses, outside help is also being increasingly available for these tasks. The issues of spreading literacy in the remote, rural areas and providing the newly demanded skills of information technology are at the forefront. If the cooperative links between the governmental agencies and nongovernmental efforts, especially the rural cooperatives, remain strong, most, if not all, educational goals may be successfully met in a gradual manner.
