The children of Bangladesh are often left out of the world of high-tech education.
The country’s Education Ministry says it has only 30% of its 3,000 classrooms equipped with classrooms that can accommodate children, and only 15% of those have a chair.
Many parents are frustrated by the government’s inaction and often resort to using chairs and other non-electronic devices to teach.
The chair, on the other hand, is an essential tool for a child’s development.
It allows a child to explore and be active, according to a report by the UNICEF Bangladesh Center for Development.
It also gives children an outlet to explore ideas and develop the social skills needed to function in modern society.
This, in turn, helps to foster their self-esteem and self-confidence, according the UN.
In Bangladesh, there are now more than 100,000 schools that offer physical education, a subject that is widely taught in schools.
A child’s age is one of the key factors that determine how well a child learns.
Older children and children with disabilities are more likely to be excluded from schools and to be left out in the cold.
This can leave them vulnerable to poverty, abuse and violence, according UNICEf.
The children’s chair is one way they can access the tools they need to be active and participate in their education.
A school chair has the ability to provide a space for children to move around, to explore the environment and to interact with their peers, according Toejwari Mardani, a senior education officer with the UN Children’s Fund Bangladesh.
This helps the child to feel connected to their peers and encourages the child’s academic progress.
A chair is also a great way to teach children about their bodies, which is important because they are often not given enough time to explore themselves, Mardanis says.
The Chair for Children and Children with Disabilities was launched in 2013, after the government pledged to improve children’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.
The chairs were installed in schools, but not as part of regular education.
But after the chairs were adopted in the early 2000s, the government began working with schools and parents to ensure that the chairs are accessible and available to children, said Dr Mahbubul Hasan Khan, a school education officer.
Children with disabilities often don’t have access to chairs in classrooms and are left out by their teachers, Khan said.
Khan said there are also many families that don’t even have a school chair because of the government policies.
There is a lot of frustration, he said.
“We are trying to find a solution and get the chair installed in every school in Bangladesh, and I am confident that we will succeed.”
One of the chairs was installed in a kindergarten, where children were learning in an open classroom with no chairs, Khan told Al Jazeera.
The Ministry of Education said it is working to install more chairs in all schools and that it is considering expanding its physical education programme to include all schools.
The ministry is currently working with the World Bank to identify more schools that can be equipped with chairs and has been working with NGOs to design chairs and make them available.
However, it said that it has already received over $300,000 in pledges to help schools equip their classrooms with chairs.
“The chair is a key component of our physical education program and we are determined to provide children with access to the tools necessary to develop and grow into adults,” Khan said, adding that he expects the government to take action soon.
