Latiful Azam, Kishoreganj (Nilphamari): Putimari Kalikapur Manthana High School in Kishoreganj upazila of Nilphamari is enrolled in MPO but the teachers and staff are living a dehumanized life without getting salary for months. It is learned that the school was established in 2004. Every time the students contribute to the public examination due to the diligent efforts of the teachers. Due to the regular teaching activities in accordance with all the rules of the Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, permission was given by the Board of Education in 2012 and academic recognition was given at the lower secondary level in 2014. By fulfilling the conditions imposed in accordance with the MPO policy and manpower structure-2018, the educational institution submits the qualifications and experience of the teachers and staff to the concerned ministry in accordance with the rules and regulations of the recruitment process. In 2019, 2730 educational institutions were enrolled in MPO. Teachers and employees of the listed institutions announced to receive salary allowance from July 1, 2019. But the teachers and staff of the listed institution are living a dehumanized life by not getting the MPO code and being deprived of the government salary allowance for a long time. Assistant social science teacher Azharul and religion teacher Sajanur Rahman said the government had recognized the school. But even after enrolling in MPO, we have 10 teachers and 6 employees who do not get salary allowance. Every year the acting head teacher submits the required documents from us for the MPO code. But it is not clear why we still do not get our salaries and allowances. For the last 18 years, we, the teachers and staff, have been working with the family without any pay.
When asked about not getting the MPO code of the teacher-employee from the acting headmaster Zahidul Islam in this regard, he said, I did the recruitment committee paper online. But there has been a complication because it did not show. Later I went to the Department of Education with the papers of the recruitment committee and they asked me to do it online. But the paper has not been made online yet.
Upazila Secondary Education Officer ATM Nurul Amin Shah said the quality of education in the school is also good. But I can’t say why the teachers and staff are not getting MPO code.
