Education is not compulsory, but is free for elementary students.  Approximately 85 percent of the elementary school-aged children attend schools, while secondary schools enroll less than 20 percent.  This poor attendance record is responsible for Bangladesh's literacy rate of 41 percent for people 15 years and older.  The education system in Bangladesh is similar to that begun by the British before 1947.

Over 500,000 students attended colleges or universities in the years from 1989 to 1990.  The largest (and oldest) university in Bangladesh is the University of Dhaka which was established in 1921.  Other universities in Dhaka are Jahangirnagar University (1970) and the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (1962).  Two Bangladesh's colleges are Chittagong Polyechnic Institute (1962) and Bangladesh College of Textile Technology (1950).
