No headmasters in 55 Chandpur primary schools
At least 55 government primary schools at Faridganj upazila in Chandpur have been functioning without headmasters for years, severely hampering education and other academic activities. The vacant posts are not being filled with newly recruited people due to various complications, reports UNB. Locals say there has been no headmaster at Dakshin Char Rampur Government Primary School for the last 10 years. Md Wahidur Rahman, president of Dakshin Char Rampur Government Primary School’s managing committee, also the vice-chairman of Faridganj upazila parishad, said: “An institution cannot act properly without a leader and a primary school cannot function without a headmaster. It is indeed a lacking in the school if we do not have a headmaster.” He demanded authorities concerned to appoint a headmaster as soon as possible. However, Faridganj Upazila Education Officer Md Fariduddin Ahmed said they sent a list of vacant posts to the higher authorities a few days ago. "I hope the vacant posts will be filled soon. Once the posts are filled, quality education will be ensured in these primary schools,” he added. Senior assistant teachers of these 55 primary schools, including 27 newly nationalised schools, have been running the institutions as acting heads alongside their regular duties.
