Head teacher shortage in government primary schools in Kurigram, Education system is bad.

 Saifur Rahman Shamim, Kurigram –

 366 posts of head teachers of government primary schools are vacant for a long time in Kurigram.  As a result, the educational program is being disrupted in all those schools.  Due to the shortage of teachers, there has been a standstill in administrative activities including teaching of young students.

 There are a total of 1,240 government primary schools in 9 upazilas of Kurigram district.  Among these schools, 366 schools have vacancies for head teachers.  Among them, from 2017, 1 assistant teacher in 234 schools was given the current responsibility as head teacher.  But still there are 132 schools without head teachers.  As a result, these schools have become guardianless.  On the other hand, the assistant teachers who are currently in charge of the head teacher are not getting any facilities and status even though they are performing two duties at the same time.  There is no government directive in this regard.  They are performing duties through frustration.  In this situation, supervision of assistant teachers, monitoring of class activities, regular teaching and administrative activities are also being disrupted.

 Nurjahan Begum, the current head teacher of Karimer Khamar Government Primary School in Kurigram Sadar said, We have been running the school with frustration.  Let us protect our honor by publishing the official gazette soon.

 On the other hand, the headmaster of Muktaram Government Primary School of Kurigram Sadar Upazila passed away two years ago, but the post of headmaster is vacant in that school.  No one has been given current responsibility in this school.  The managing committee of that school is running the program with the responsibility of a senior teacher.  Besides, due to the shortage of teachers, instead of 9 teachers, 5 teachers are now working in that school.  The assistant teacher of the school, Nazneen Rebecca Sultana, said that due to the shortage of assistant teachers, the teaching program of the school has been disrupted.

 Acting Headmaster Manwara Khatun demanded to solve the post of Headmaster along with the appointment of teachers to ensure the education of young children.

 , Muktaram Government Primary School Managing Committee President Anwarul Islam expressed anger

 Despite repeated applications for filling the posts of head teachers and assistant teachers in the concerned department, nothing has been done.

 Principal Salauddin Rubel, General Secretary of District Independence Teachers Parishad, said that the education system is under threat due to various crises in primary schools.  He complained that the schools in remote areas including Char area are in a more fragile situation than the district headquarters.

 District Primary Education Officer Md. Shahidul Islam acknowledged the issue of head teacher crisis and said that the issue of crisis will be resolved quickly.  Communication continues at higher levels.

 In order to ensure the teaching of students in the primary schools of the district, the concerned department will take measures to fill the vacant posts of head teachers and assistant teachers.
