Introduction:
Education paves the way for developing a nation. It is the key to a nation’s development. Education is the principal means to achieve the goal of poverty alleviation. A properly educated nation, which is modern in generous and intellect and forward looking in thinking, can only put the country at the zenith of its development. That’s why education is the backbone of nations. In Bangladesh, the key to achieving high rates of economic growth and at the same time ensuring that the fruits of economic growth are equitably shared by her population lies in development and utilization of her human resources. Education has been recognized as a priority sector by all governments since her independence. 
Objectives of this study:

Ø  To analyses the two important Education Policy in Bangladesh, namely, Education Policy-2000 and Education Policy Policy-2010
Ø  To make a comparative discussion between the two important Education Policy, namely, Education Policy-2000 and Education Policy Policy-2010

Significance of this study:
 Education is the backbone of a nation. A properly educated nation can accelerate the path to the development.  Without a proper and efficient Education Policy, a country can never achieve total development. The Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh constituted the Education Policy-2010. It already achieved huge appreciations from all sections of the people. The new Education Policy2010 is being implemented at present time and with then course of time, it will be implemented gradually and Bangladesh will get her long waited educated nation. So, hopefully, we can say that the Education Policy-2010 will play a significant to development of Bangladesh
