Bangladesh has recorded an impressive progress in poverty reduction and certain human development outcomes. Gross primary enrolment rate is around 90%, secondary enrolment is more than doubled since independence and the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) gender parity target has already been achieved at both the primary (Grade 1-5) and secondary (Grades 6-10) education level. Much of the achievement in the three-fold increase in overall secondary enrolments and seven-fold increase in female component in 1980 has been a result of successful expansion of the private sector via supply side incentives and a gender targeted program since the early 1990s.GOB, with IDA’s support, initiated the first Female Secondary School Assistance Project (FSSAP) (1993-2001) where IDA funded implementation in 119 Upazilas, while GOB and other development partners financed the intervention in the remaining Upazilas.
