Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said that the government is going to give promotion to 5,000 teachers.
“Previously, there was no other post for senior teachers in our schools and colleges. We have now created that post for senior teachers through which 5,000 teachers are set to be promoted,” she said.
The education minister disclosed the information while speaking at a ceremony organized by 15 leading national and international development organisations on Wednesday (February 10).
Dipu Moni said, “The number of our secondary and higher secondary teachers is 5,75,430. There are many countries in the world which have their total population less than this. The number of students is 1.5 crore. There are 15,524 teachers and 40,85,291 students in the universities across the country. There are very few countries in the world where about five million students are studying at the university level.”
