Bangladesh has been witnessing nearly 100% enrollment ratio in primary education over the past several years despite adverse environment. But a large number of children leave education after primary level and become victim of child labor. The Government of Bangladesh has recently introduced a creative method at primary level, keeping most of the teachers untrained. So, teachers depend on either guidebooks, available in local markets, or their self-thought and wisdom. According to the findings of this survey, 13% teachers have no complete understanding on creative method, 47% take help from guidebooks, and 25% think that creative method system is not suitable to primary students. Whereas 92% students rely on guidebooks, 67% students need help of private tutors, 25% students do not understand the question papers at exam halls, and 25% students see both mathematics and English most difficult to learn. This survey, thereby, easily reflects a real understanding on the scenario of primary education in Bangladesh.
