Non-govt primary schools, teachers to be nationalised

The government has decided to nationalise 26,193 non-government primary schools and its 103,845 teachers across the country. “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to declare this today (Wednesday) at the teachers’ grand rally at National Parade Ground,” Primary and Mass Education Minister Dr Afsarul Ameen told reporters at a press briefing at the ministry on Tuesday. He said that jobs of 1,03,885 teachers would be nationalised in three phases under the scheme.
The minister expected that over one lakh teachers would attend the grand rally.
A total of 22,981 schools that have already been getting Monthly Pay Order (MPO) from the government, will be nationalised in the first phase, the minister said, adding, “A total of 2,252 schools, which are not getting the MPO benefits, will be nationalised in the second phase on July 1.”
He further said that nationalisation of the remaining 960 schools, which have either got approval or have been waiting for approval, will take place in the third phase on January 1, 2014.
Once nationalised, the teachers of these schools will get the same salaries and benefits as those in government primary schools, Dr Ameen said.
“A total of Tk 100 crore will be needed in the first phase, Tk 371 crore in the second and Tk 651 crore in the third phase as an additional cost,” the minister said. Earlier, the Premier assured the primary teachers to meet their demand and directed the ministry to prepare a draft policy to nationalise these schools and teachers on May 27 last year.
The ministry then formed a committee that prepared the draft policy and submitted before the Prime Minister’s office.
The government of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman first nationalised 36,165 primary schools including over one lakh fifty thousand teachers across the country in 1973. Since then, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, is going to nationalise 26,193 non-government primary schools and its 103,845 teachers across the country at a time for the second time in the history. There are now over 85,000 government and non-government  primary schools across the country.
