‘The educational qualification of the chairman, president, or members of the managing committee cannot be less than graduate’

A legal notice has been served to the government declaring the criteria for the post of the president or members of the management committees of higher secondary schools.

It stated that the educational qualification of the chairman, president, or member of the managing committee cannot be less than graduate.

Supreme Court lawyer advocate Md Zahir Uddin Limon on behalf of rights organization, Legal Support and People Rights, sent the legal notice on Wednesday. Limon is also the chairman of the organization.

The notice was sent to the secretary of the Higher Education Division of the Ministry of Education, the director general of the Secondary and Higher Education, and chairman of the Intermediate and Secondary Education Board.

Citing the notice, on September 6 last year, the government published a gazette declaring that no person will be eligible to be selected or elected as a president of the managing committee of any primary school unless he is a graduate.

But due to absence of such a criteria some unqualified persons have occupied the posts of the chairman, president, or member of the managing committee of higher secondary school all over the country, which is a big obstacle for expanding the quality education system.

It is essential for an educational institution to select or elect an educated person who holds a bachelor’s degree for the post to develop the educational system and to maintain the standard quality of education, the notice said.

The lawyer requested the recipients of the notice to take appropriate steps to publish gazette declaring criteria to for the post of the chairman, president, or member of the managing committee of higher secondary school stating the educational qualification of the chairman, president, or member of managing committee is not less than graduate, such as the gazette declaring the criteria for the managing committee of primary school. 

He also said that he will file a writ petition with the High Court in this regard if the notice recipients will not take appropriate steps within 15 days.
