Sources in the Ministry of Education say that the policy will be finalized soon. Those concerned say that despite having no educational qualifications, the president has financial and political influence who create obstacles in various matters. Many times they spread political influence and spoil the educational environment. Therefore, if the educational qualification is determined, this effect will be reduced at least. Government bureaucrats spread the same influence. A no-objection motion has been put in place to rein them in. Therefore, if the educational qualification is determined, this effect will be reduced at least. And if educated people come to the leadership, the quality of education will also increase. Officials said that there has been a big change after making graduation or degree pass mandatory to become the president of the primary managing committee. In the previous regulation-2009, it was stated that after the election of general members of the managing committee of the secondary school and the governing body of the college, the electors shall convene a meeting for the election of the president within seven days. Accordingly, the chairman of the committee was elected based on the opinion of the majority of the members. In this case, one person was selected from among a member or a local educationist, social worker, public representative or retired first class officer. In special circumstances, the concerned District Commissioner, Additional District Commissioner or concerned Upazila Nirbahi Officer was nominated as the President. In case of metropolitan cities, the Deputy Commissioner, Additional Deputy Commissioner or any first class officer was given this responsibility. One person was not allowed to serve as president in more than two educational institutions. On this occasion, talking to the headmasters of several schools and college principals, it is known that in most cases, despite having no educational qualifications, people who have financial and political influence sit in the president’s seat. As they do not have a good understanding of the education system, they create obstacles in various matters. Many times they spread political influence and spoil the educational environment. In November 2019, the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education issued a policy that to become the president of a government primary school, one must pass graduation. This brought back order to a large extent in the primary schools. After that, there are demands from various quarters to determine the educational qualification of the president in secondary school as well. Finally, in consultation with all education boards, administration officials and academics, this standard has been set as HSC pass for the time being. According to the new regulations, to become the president of the managing committee of the secondary school and the governing body of the college, a minimum of HSC must be passed. A person can be president of maximum four institutions including two secondary schools and two colleges. Apart from this, government bureaucrats can become president with a no-objection certificate from the concerned department. Dhaka Education Board Chairman Professor Tapan Kumar Sarkar said the ministry is working on new regulations. As far as I know, the educational qualification of school and college president is set as HSC pass. Apart from this, some other new topics have been added.
