Education Minister Dipu Moni on Sunday warned of taking strict measures against the authorities of educational institutions if health rules are violated amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, reports media.
“Regular monitoring will be carried out in the educational institutions to check whether the teaching is continuing as per health protocols and government instructions,” the minister told.
“Actions will be taken against the authorities of schools and colleges in violation of the hygiene rules. At the same time, officials at the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education, who are responsible for monitoring the issues, will also face action,” she said after inspecting Azimpur Government Girls School and College in Dhaka this morning.
Meanwhile, the minister ordered to suspend the principal of the institution along with other teachers responsible for monitoring as she found dirt in the classroom during her visit.
The minister, however, asked the authorities of educational institutions not to create pressure on students for their uniform.
After a long shutdown of 18 months in the wake of the raging Covid-19 pandemic, primary, secondary and higher secondary schools opened doors on Sunday to resume in-person classes and examinations.
Students were found excited and expressed their happiness as they were able to attend classes physically after a long gap while teachers also sighed in relief to find students in classrooms.
However, uncertainty looms as the government said the academia may again face closure if the Covid situation turns worse.
