In schools, it is the uniformity of dress, shoes, belts, ties, etc., that creates an atmosphere of oneness among children, irrespective of the background they hail from. Once in college, all hell seems to break loose with children of rich families flaunting their wealth that includes wearing expensive and fashionable dresses, using costly mobile phones, and spending lavishly in the canteens. This hurts the feelings of the not-so-rich, leading to factionalism, ill-will, and unhealthy competition. Affluent students can indulge in extravaganza outside their colleges but ostentatious display of wealth should not be allowed on campuses. Colleges, therefore, should have uniforms; ban the use of mobile phones within the college precincts; ban students from bringing two- and four-wheelers to colleges. Such measures will go a long way in bringing about equality and uniformity and improvement in the academic environment.
Bangladesh must think of uniform quality education than thinking about all peripheral things related to education. This is the first in priority. With uniforms and no quality education or quality education to the affordable rich alone will be leading Bangladesh to dark age. All must think of this first. So how should a student come to school or what should a student's parents be or how should a classroom be designed etc are less important compared to the quality of education given to all students of Bangladesh.
When someone thinks of uniformity at all Bangladesh level, there are lots of unanswered questions. Will the educators and policy makers think deeply on them ?
