Not so rosy
THE Awami League-led government apparently wants to showcase that a significant progress has been made in the education sector over the past few years. However, the reality on the ground seems to indicate otherwise.
More than 3,000 teaching positions in 292 government colleges have been vacant for a long time. More than 200 secondary schools out of 315 government secondary schools have no head teachers for a prolonged period of time and the picture is not rosy for government colleges either.
All classes are overcrowded with students in most of the colleges so the quality of teaching is a great concern particularly in the urban areas.
Less qualified teachers have been recruited at the non-government colleges, which is another acute problem for quality teaching.
It is now no open secret that teachers of colleges have been giving high marks in the papers for the last few years even if the candidates do not deserve and the trend will be continued.
Around 50 per cent students could not pass in all the honours courses of National University in the first year final examinations, which proves the reality.
