Primary schools to run in one shift. The Directorate of Primary Education has directed the district primary education officers to take measures to run the government primary schools which have an adequate number of usable classrooms and teachers in one turn immediately. The directive was issued on Wednesday (January 4).
Meanwhile, a letter signed by Nasrin Sultana, assistant director of the Policy and Operation Branch of the Directorate of Primary Education, has been sent to the primary education officers. The Ministry of Primary and Mass Education had already planned to run the government primary schools in the country in one shift. Now the Department of Primary Education has decided to implement this decision.
Senior Secretary of the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education. Aminul Islam Khan had said last year that some government primary schools will be merged considering the imbalance in the number of students and teachers, distance, shift, etc. His argument was that there is less teacher less teacher, more teacher less student – there is such a lack of balance somewhere. If integrated into nearby schools, students’ learning hours will be more.
According to ministry sources, where there are two shifts, there are fewer hours of learning. Where there are more students, shifts have to be introduced, and the shifts of those schools have been merged. Now there are no shifts in those schools. In the new directive of the Directorate of Primary Education, it has been said that in the schools where there are currently a sufficient number of usable classrooms and teachers, measures should be taken to conduct teaching in a single shift immediately.
And schools that do not have enough classrooms or teachers or have a shortage of both; Two government primary schools located nearby (maximum distance of 1 km) will have to start an integrated program in terms of teaching.
