Academic activities at more than 500 educational institutions across Sylhet have remained suspended due to flooding.

Of them, most educational institutions are being used as shelter centres for flood affected people while the remaining institutions have been submerged. As a result, classes have been suspended since the Eid holidays.

Moreover, the unprecedented flooding caused damages to roads, agriculture, fisheries in the northeastern district of Bangladesh but the education sector has been hardest hit.

To bridge the learning gap, secondary schools nationwide started classes on June 26 instead of July 2. However, many secondary schools in Sylhet have not resumed classes post-Eid. The same situation exists in primary schools.

Although primary schools were supposed to reopen on July 3 after the Eid holidays, this has not been possible due to the flooding in Sylhet.

According to sources, 398 primary schools and 78 secondary schools in the district are currently closed due to flooding. Several colleges have also faced the situation.

The District Primary Education Office said that out of 1,477 primary schools in the district, 398 are close.
