Roya Institute is delighted to congratulate our Bangladeshi colleagues on adopting anti-bullying regulations in educational institutions within their country. Academic bullying, often overlooked, represents a significant challenge to academic freedom. We express our hopes for the comprehensive enforcement of these regulations among Bangladeshi professors, teachers, and educational administrators. Such implementation promises to foster a more conducive educational environment, nurturing critical thinking and cultivating the values of active learning and self-assurance in students.
We sincerely thank Ms. Alida Saqi, one of the representatives of the Roya Institute in Bangladesh, for sharing this information and encouraging news.
More details about these progressive and forward-looking regulations are as follows:
