Suspended N’ganj schoolteacher reinstated, with school body dissolved

19 May 2016, Nirapad News: The government has reinstated the head teacher of Piyar Sattar Latif High School in Narayanganj, dissolving its managing committee in face of huge criticism from different quarters.

Announcing the new school committee in a press briefing in the capital on Thursday,
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid also said the probe body formed by the government could not find any proof of the allegation brought against the head teacher.

bdnews24.com adds, “The order to sack the teacher was not legitimate. It has been cancelled,” Nahid said.

The minister added that a temporary body headed by the Narayanganj’s district commissioner has been formed for the school. “Humiliating a teacher in a civilised society is heinous.”
