 Regarding the movement of panel candidates for the appointment of assistant teachers in government primary schools, Akram Al Hossain, senior secretary at the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education said the government has no plans to recruit panel teachers. According to the rules, recruitment will be done from among the eligible persons through recruitment test, reports Jago News.  Candidates who were dropped from the oral examination in the Government Primary School Teacher Recruitment-2018 examination have been protesting for a week in front of the National Press Club and the office of the Department of Primary Education in Mirpur.
Police dispersed them on Wednesday (October 14) night. Now they have warned to build a new hard movement.
Yesterday Akram Al Hossain told the Jago News, “We have already issued a notification to clarify the appointment as per the rules. Everything related to this has been clearly mentioned there.
Meanwhile, Atiq Bin Sattar, assistant director of the recruitment branch of the Department of Primary Education, told Jago News that there is no mention of recruitment of panel teachers as per the government teacher recruitment rules. Candidates who had earlier passed the recruitment test in the registered schools were paneled. Several teachers have been recruited from there.
He said 32,000 new teachers would be recruited across the country. Of these, 25,000 pre-primary posts have been created. The remaining 7,000 different government primary schools have been reopened. Those who are recommended by the Upazila and Thana based Central Committee will be appointed on the basis of the results of written and oral examinations for the new vacancies.
