‘excessive’ coaching

MPO-listed teachers to ‘face action’

HARUN UR RASHID

The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) has warned that it will take steps against those teachers involved in “excessive coaching business” at different non-government educational institutions in the capital. DSHE sources said they have received allegations against at least 80 teachers who are under the monthly pay order (MPO) facilities in different educational institutions in the capital for engaging in “excessive coaching business”.

Allegations have been levelled that these teachers have not desisted from “excessive coaching business” despite being warned several times, the sources said. They rued that even the educational institutions did not take any effective steps.

When such teachers are busy making money by engaging in excessive coaching at home, these teachers cannot pay full attention to the classrooms, Prof. Dr Md. Abdul Mannan, director (secondary) of DSHE, told The Independent recently.

“When a teacher is involved in the excessive coaching business and no action is taken against him/her, this matter encourages other teachers to follow the same path. This will ultimately hamper the entire educational environment,” he observed.

“When a teacher gives more time to his/her own coaching business, she/he cannot concentrate on the classrooms, which ultimately deprives the other students. It is seen that such teachers become tired due to excessive work in their coaching and fail to render full service to the schools from where the teachers draw their salaries i.e. from the government exchequer,” he added.

“As a result, we want to take action against such teachers to save the entire educational environment, especially the students who come to classrooms to get lessons from the teachers,” he warned. When queried about the names of the educational institutions at the secondary level, he said the names of the institutions would be disclosed soon after replies are received from those teachers who are allegedly involved in such “excessive coaching business”.

Another source disclosed that most of these MPO-listed teachers who are enjoying the benefits from the government are from renowned non-government educational institutions in the capital.

Prof. Abdul Mannan said, “We will take action against those teachers who are involved in the excessive coaching business. We will apply the maximum uses of the law to bring such persons to justice because such teachers not only hamper classroom teaching but also encourage other teachers to follow their path for quick benefits.”

DSHE sources said the maximum punishment against such teachers could entail the cancellation of their MPO facilities. “We hope the teachers would refrain from the excessive coaching business and concentrate on their main task of giving lessons to the students in the classroom. Besides, we would urge other teachers not to follow the path of such teachers,” he added.

The DSHE has already started taking action against the teachers of government schools found engaged in excessive coaching. As a punitive measure, DSHE has already transferred a number of teachers of the government schools to other schools outside the capital.

The DSHE said that such action would continue to be taken in future as their team is actively working in this respect because it wants to ensure proper teaching in the classrooms.
