Concern about secondary education
SECONDARY education is deteriorating day by day. Everyone will be happy to see the results of the last few years; the pass rate and the number A+ holders have increased.
Sylhet had the lowest pass rate last two years ago but now has the best pass rate among all the boards. Development in education has not happened like Aladin’s lamp as the incumbent government apparently wants the people to believe.
Teacher is said to be the builders of a nation but the incumbent government has not done anything to recruit best candidates as teachers in the non-government secondary schools through establishing a public service commission. On the contrary, recruitment of non-meritorious candidates allegedly in exchange for a huge amount of money to ruling party members who chair school management committees continues.
If we continue to recruit non-meritorious candidates as teachers, they will be unable to handle students and produce the best for society. Teachers’ salary should be increased reasonably to get better people as teachers. Some schools have got multimedia, laptop and other equipments and rest of the schools will get them soon which involve a lot of public money.
A huge amount of public money has been squandered through different projects. Some teachers were transferred to teachers training colleges for foreign training (some for 2 years) but after getting the training they went back to their colleges where such training could not be made best use of.
Instead of spending public money on unrealistic projects, the incumbents need to streamline teacher recruitment and increase teachers’ salary.
