Introduction

1. Background of the Study:
International organizations, policymakers, and scholars acknowledge the importance of universal education. Both public and private gains to investment in education are high: economic growth, individual earning potential, and health indicators are all positively correlated with education. Multiple forums, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, have recognized primary education as a human right. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Education for All movement set a goal of universal primary and secondary education by 2015, a target simultaneously established in the Millennium Development Goals.
Public financing of education has been a priority for governments in developing countries for several decades. This is because education is perceived in modern societies as an important pillar of socioeconomic development. However, in recent years, the education sector has faced stronger competition from other sectors also seeking financial government support. In the budget for fiscal year 2011-2012 the government has proposed Tk 19,873 crore for education sector with Tk 10,850 crore for the Education ministry The proposed volume is Tk 1725 crore more than that of the allocation of Tk 18,148 crore in the fiscal year 2010-2011.
In 2010-2011 fiscal year the allocation for the technical and vocational education was 233.64 crore which was 14.98% of total education development program, where the total spending on education development program was 1624.69 crore.

1.2 Objectives of the Study

...Rafsan Mahtab ID: 16-087 Here I have included the proposition and analysis of indirect taxes for the budget FY: 2009/10 Proposition Currently in our country a big portion of tax revenue is earned by import duty which constitutes nearly 42% of the total tax revenue. Because of the ongoing current global recession it is suspected that the revenue from this sector may go down. In this year’s budget a change has brought in the import tariff in certain areas to protect our local industries and retain our export market. Some measures has been proposed which are: 1. A reduction in the in the duty on basic raw materials from 7% to 5% to make our local industry more competitive both in local and international market. 2. Agricultural sector has been declared as the top priority sector and the continuation with the zero tariff on imports of fertilizer, seeds and major food grains. Along with medicine and raw cotton .withdraw VAT on the imports of raw materials to produce pesticides has been proposed to keep pesticides easily available for farmers. 3. Increasing supplementary duty on the imports of luxury vehicles and restructuring of duty slabs has been proposed to augment revenue collection and to discourage imports of luxury vehicles. 4. In order to offer exemption from supplementary duty against import of hybrid motorcars, which is fuel efficient, it is proposed to create a new HS code for separate classification. 5. To enable importation of durable...

Importance of Vocational Education

...NAME TEACHER COURSE DATE Importance of Vocational Training Introduction: Service Project/Research Topic Though this paper is about Vocational Education and Training, I'll begin with a discussion of reason behind the topic. For the last couple months, our English class has had the assignment to complete twenty hours of service to solve a community issue. For the first while I had no clue what I was going to do for my service project much less find a research topic related to my service. I raked through my memory and I remembered one experience I had with my former wood shop teacher at Orem High School. He had already retired and came in to visit the shop and we were talking about why he had retired. Though he seemed nostalgic and remorseful about leaving the school, he stated very bluntly that vocational education was fading and would soon be unimportant. I did not ever have a chance to ask him what he meant, but I think I figured it out. He meant that in the United States, as well as in countries such as China (Willis 39) and India (Agrawal 453), Vocational Education and Training (VET) has begun to fade and but its significance is still prominent. We already see this in Nigeria. (Kennedy 274) So that is what I picked for my research topic, and I decided to volunteer at Orem High's wood shop and see for myself the advantages and disadvantages of a lower level VET program. I have concluded that VET programs are highly valuable, need support, and should be......

Education and Women’s Empowerment in Bangladesh

...Education and Women’s Empowerment in Bangladesh Nashid Kamal *and K.M Zunaid** *Professor and Head, Department of Population-Environment Independent University, Bangladesh **Graduate student, Sydney 1 Abstract: In Bangladesh the latest BDHS, 2004 finds that only twenty percent women work for cash. Among them only 48 percent are able to spend their money on their own, the rest are dependant upon spouses or other family members to take joint decisions on spending. Defining this variable as a measure of empowerment, this analysis investigates correlates of empowerment using logistic regression analysis. The model finds that marital status is the most significant predictor of empowerment in Bangladesh. Unmarried women are six times more likely to be empowered. Secondary education is another major determinant of empowerment, along with the woman’s mobility and decision making scores. The paper recommends strengthening women’s secondary education in Bangladesh and also taking measures to encourage late marriage for women. 2 INTRODUCTION The participation of women in the labour market in Bangladesh has increased in the recent years. One of the major areas where women have found employment has been the garment sector. This industry employs around 10 million persons directly or indirectly, of which ninety percent are women workers. In the 1993-94 BDHS the percentage of women who reported cash income was only 14.4 percent. After the garment industries were set up in......

Budget of Bangladesh

...modern industrial economies, the budget is the key instrument for the execution of government economic policies. Because government budgets may promote or retard economic growth in certain areas of the economy and because views about priorities in government spending differ widely, government budgets are the focus of competing political interests. The budget has been announced with eight major objectives including creating employments, maintaining prices of essentials at a tolerable level, ensuring food security and extending social safety net. INTRODUCTION Forecast of governmental expenditures and revenues for the ensuing fiscal year. In modern industrial economies, the budget is the key instrument for the execution of government economic policies. Because government budgets may promote or retard economic growth in certain areas of the economy and because views about priorities in government spending differ widely, government budgets are the focus of competing political interests. A government budget is a legal document that is often passed by the legislature, and approved by the chief executive. For example, only certain types of revenue may be imposed and collected. Property tax is frequently the basis for local revenues, while sales tax may be the basis for state revenues, and income tax and corporate tax are the basis for national revenues.   On 9 June 2008, the Finance Adviser to the Caretaker Government presented the national budget for the financial year (FY)......

Technical Education

...This paper aims to discuss the technical education market centered on polytechnic education which is involved in community development work. A Polytechnic is a higher education technical institution. There are various types of polytechnics in India- Government polytechnics, Government aided polytechnics, private polytechnics, women’s polytechnics etc. Polytechnic education aims at offering three years diploma courses in engineering and vocational fields. The students of a Polytechnic are adept in handling practical oriented tasks and exhibit supervisory skills. A case study of NRAM Polytechnic is taken into consideration as it enjoys the status of a rural polytechnic and is also involved in the scheme of community development through polytechnics which is an initiative of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt of India. The HRD minister, Kapil Sibal has asserted that the Government will never allow profiteering in education that would go as dividends to the shareholders. The scheme of community development through polytechnics is an on-going scheme. AICTE approved polytechnics are considered to be a viable vehicle for providing the intended services. The rationale for choosing AICTE approved Polytechnics for the implementation of Scheme of Community Development through Polytechnics is based on the fact that AICTE approved Polytechnics are equipped with resources: i. Polytechnics are equipped with physical facilities in the form of buildings, lecture halls,......

Quality Assurance in Vocational Education

...QUALITY CONCEPT IN EDUCATION In recent years, the discussion and debate on the quality of higher education and the mechanism for quality assurance in higher education have growth intensely. With the upgraded formerly known as vocational school to vocational college, quality of the end product should not be compromised. Concern on quality did start from the 13th and 14th century where it more focused on the term of education, the delivery system and the intended audience at that time. The setting for education at that time was for select few or the elite classes as the early European universities were set up to the educated status of the nobility. The criteria for quality assurance at the time were limited to determining the expertise of the teacher and students performance through demonstration of mastery of knowledge. Nowadays the democratization of education has change the delivery of formal education. Highly educated society is seen as essential for growth and development of a country. The impact of new technology also has change the way population gain access to education. In 21st century, quality assurance process is a must especially in higher education institutions to ensure the quality and credibility of the student produced. Woodhouse (1992) defines Quality assurance as a program in an institution where, quality assurance involves attitudes, objects, actions, and procedures, which, through their existence and use, and together with the quality control......

Save Vocational Education in High Schools

...ENG 1060 – English 16 November 2011 Save Vocational Education Vocational programs at the high school level are an excellent way to provide fresh young minds with skills that cannot be achieved through academic courses alone. It is a solid foundation for young adults entering the work force in today’s economy. “A technical education is crucial in this day and age, equally so to some students as academic offerings are to others”(Tech Ed n. pag)., allowing them to pursue a career after high school whether they decide to further their education or not as stated by one news journalist; “…not every student wants to, or even should go to college. A sound technical track on the high school level can give students the skills to make a good living while providing an attractive pool of workers to draw new business.” (Tech Ed n. pag). Vocational programs must remain in place in America’s high schools and not be closed due to budget cuts or lack of interest as they are necessary to provide students with occupational and life skills. Vocational learning has often been depicted as a way of avoiding the monotony of traditional academics. This is not the case; by incorporating the programs directly with the high school, technical classes are taken in conjunction with core academics. Courses such as technical education, business and accounting, and many other classes are great ways for students to begin learning what it will be like to work in a professional environment when......

Budget Analysis

... Introduction: Budget might be regarded as public intentions with price tags attached. Budgets include itemized estimates of anticipated income and expenses, including a plan of operation based on such estimates. Government budget, forecast by a government of its expenditures and revenues for a specific period of time. In national finance, the period covered by a budget is usually a year, known as a financial or fiscal year, which may or may not correspond with the calendar year. The word budget is derived from the Old French bougette (“little bag”). Budgets have an economic, political and technical basis. Unlike a pure economic budget, they are not entirely designed to allocate scarce resources for the best economic use. They also have a political basis wherein different interests push and pull in an attempt to obtain benefits and avoid burdens. The technical element is the forecast of the likely levels of revenues and expenses. Rational Of The Study: The Paper is assigned by our course teacher Ast. Prof. Md. Shariful Alam Khandakar as a part of our“Taxation” course. The topic of our Assignment paper is “Budget Analyse of FY 2012-13’ impacts”. By conducting this Assignment we can enhance our knowledge and skill to apply various research methods in professional life on higher educational life.
