Non-government teachers at a human chain in front of the National Press Club on Friday demanded that their job should be nationalised, the education policy should be immediately implemented and they should be allowed to do private coaching.
They put forth their the 10-point demand at the protests organised by the Bangladesh Teachers’ Association.
They called on the government to meet their demands by August 25 or face tougher programmes, including closure of all non-government educational institutions for an indefinite period and hunger strike.
The organisation’s president Mohammad Abul Bashar Hawlader said that the prime minister had assured the teachers of meeting their demands which are there in the Awami League’s election manifesto but none of them was yet met.
He added that the decision of the government to stop coaching business of teachers was not appreciable as the teachers were not well paid and were deprived of other facilities.
The association’s secretary general Mohammad Salam Khan said, ‘We have been pushing for our demands for about three years now but none of the demands has been met.’
The other demands of the teachers include enlistment of registered non-government educational institutions for monthly pay order, increase in their house rent and medical allowance, removal of complexities in opening classes, sections and shifts and elimination of all discrimination against them in view government teachers.
