A writ petition has been filed with the High Court (HC) seeking cancellation of quota system in appointing assistant teachers for government primary schools across the country.
On behalf of Md Tarek Rahman, a candidate for the post of assistant teacher, Supreme Court lawyer Aklas Uddin Bhuiyan on Monday (November 16) filed the writ petition with the HC seeking its order on the authorities concerned of the government to cancel the quota system in the recruitment.
Lawyer Aklas Uddin said that the Public Administration Ministry has cancelled the quota system in recruitment of primary school teachers through issuing a notification on October 4, 2018.
But the Primary and Mass Education Ministry on October 18 this year issued a circular for recruiting more than 35,000 assistant teachers for government primary schools across the country including the quota system.
According to the circular, 40 percent quota for women, 20 percent dependent quota and only 20 percent quota for male candidates have been kept which is discriminatory, unconstitutional and contradictory to the notification issued by the public administration ministry on October 4, 2018, the lawyer said.
Cabinet secretary, senior secretary to the Education Ministry, senior secretary to the Public Administration Ministry, secretary to the Primary and Mass Education Ministry and director general of the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) have been made respondents to the writ.
