School education department: Filling over 67,000 vacant posts of teachers will be financial burden

With more than 67,000 teacher posts in government-run zilla parish schools vacant, the state education ministry has said it will be a financial burden on the government to recruit teachers on such a large scale.

In a letter to the Commissioner and Director of Education, dated Sept. 21, the department said: “Of the total state spending, 18 percent is spent on the education sector, with the bulk of the fund being spent on salaries. The department has requested teacher appointments for a total of 67,755 vacancies that are vacant, but the appointment of teachers at such a high level will be a financial burden on the government.”

The letter asked for data on teachers who work in government schools to submit to the finance department. It has also asked for details on the Samayojan process (adaptation of teachers) and data on schools with fewer than 20 students and what action has been taken to close such schools.

An official said: “The idea of ​​closing schools with fewer students has been around since 2015. However, no steps have been taken so far. Now the government is again coming up with the idea of ​​closing such schools and adapting teachers to schools with more students.”

Many teachers said this could be an indication that the ban on new appointments remains possible. A teacher said closing schools with fewer students is a violation of the Right to Education Act, which insists that everyone within 1 km receive primary education.

“Most schools with fewer than 20 students are located in hilly or inaccessible areas. If these schools are closed, the students could leave the mainstream education system,” said a teacher.
