Teacher shortage hampers pry edn

UNB

Academic activities at a considerable number of government primary schools in Naogaon district are being seriously hampered due to an acute shortage of teachers, reports UNB.
The crisis is affecting normal functioning of the schools as the vacancy keeps deepening.
The rate at which teachers’ recruitment is done every year is very poor compared to the posts vacant. That is why; the authorities are not getting way out of the crisis, which is rather getting worse.
Several schools in the district are also continuing academic activities with only 2/3 teachers. Consequently, guardians are forced to enroll their children in English and Bangla medium kindergartens.
District Primary Education Office sources said some 642 posts of teacher, including 109 of headmaster, have remained vacant for long in the government primary schools in nine upazilas of the district,which is increasing every year.
Of the head teacher posts, 10 are lying vacant in Atrai upazila, four in Dhamairhat upazila, 14 in sadar upazila, 12 in Niyamatpur upazila, 11 in Patnitola upazila, five in Porsha upazila, nine in Badalgachhi upazila, 18 in Mohadebpur upazila, six in Manda upazila, 14 in Raninagar upazila and six in Sapahar upazila.
In some of the schools, assistant teachers are performing duties of the headmasters.
Nineteen posts of assistant teacher are lying vacant in Atrai upazila, 24 in Dhamairhat upazila, 23 in Sadar upazila, 33 in Niyamatpur upazila, 26 in Patnitola upazila, 31 in Porsha upazila, 22 in Badalgachhi upazila, 24 in Mohadebpur upazila, 12 in Manda upazila, 22 in Raninagar upazila and 17 in Sapahar upazila.
In addition, the schools which have been recently nationalised are also facing the problem of teacher
crisis. There are 25 posts of teacher lying vacant in the newly nationalised schools of Atrai upazila, 53 posts in those of Dhamairhat upazila,33 in Naogaon upazila, 52 in Niyamatpur upazila, 62 in Patnitolaupazila, 68 in Porsha upazila, 66 in Badalgachhi upazila, 62 inMohadebpur upazila, 30 in Manda upazila, 43 in Raninagar upazila and 59 in Sapahar upazila.Despite willingness to provide standard education, the authorities of the schools are not being able to do so for the
teacher crisis. Md Aminul Islam, district primary education officer, said they sent aletter to the Education Ministry seeking immediate appointment to thevacant posts.
“The rate of teachers recruited is far less than the requirement. Ifthe crisis cannot be resolved soon, the primary education sector willinevitably face a severe setback in near future” he added.
