This policy brief on diverse providers of primary education in Bangladesh analyses the role of a range of different providers of education in the country. Drawing upon policy documents, literature as well as empirical research, it argues that official policies need to recognise the existing and potential future role of these diverse providers of education for achieving EFA. Sector Wide Approaches to Education and the next Primary Education Development Plan need to bring diverse providers of education into a coherent national policy framework. This policy brief is based on the CREATE Monograph “Debating Diversity in Access to Primary Education in Bangladesh” (Pathways to Access Series, No. 34) written by Zia-Us-Sabur and Manzoor Ahmed.
