ACC for punishing 97 teachers

The Anti-Corruption Commission or ACC has recommended punishment to 97 school teachers in Dhaka for making money through private coaching centres for decades, reports bdnews.24.com The graft watchdog earlier recommended transferring 522 teachers of 24 schools in the capital saying they have stayed in the same institutions for years in breach of the guideline. On Monday, it said punitive actions should be taken against 97 teachers of eight schools in Dhaka city.

The ACC has written to heads of the schools and their governing bodies as well as the cabinet secretary, the commission's spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told bdnews24.com. Twenty-five teachers of four public schools and 72 teachers of schools covered by the government's monthly pay order or MPO scheme have been found involved with coaching centres. The ACC has asked the government to initiate measures against the teachers in line with the 2012 education ministry guidelines on the matter and formulate a law to stop coaching centres for students. In February, an investigation was launched over allegations of embezzling of tens of millions of taka for student admission and teacher recruitment in schools and private coaching centres.

ACC investigators filed their findings in November, when it recommended transferring over 500 school teachers saying they have been teaching at the same institution for 10 to 33 years in breach of the guideline for transfer every three years The report cited political influence, lobbying and unethical financial transactions as the key factors.

It says the teachers provided administrative officials with unethical facilities to remain in the same institutions for decades by earning a 'huge' amount of money through the private coaching centres. The teachers compelled the students to study in their coaching centres, according to the report.
