From now on, headmasters in government primary schools will not be appointed directly. Assistant teachers will be the headmasters through promotion. 

According to the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, the Public Service Commission (PSC) appointed 35 percent of headmasters in the primary. This recruitment is being given to non-cadre from BCS for several years. 

Md. Akram Al Hossain, Senior Secretary of the ministry, said no more headmasters from PSC. Assistant teachers will be promoted to the post. Currently, 65 percent of the posts are filled through promotion. “We have already asked the PSC not to appoint a headmaster,” he added. 

Therefore, after amending the ‘Gazetted and Non-Gazetted Officers-Employee Recruitment Policy 1985’, a new policy will be made consisting of two rules where teachers and all officers and employees will be appointed under this.

The Ministry of Primary and Mass Education will soon send a draft of the integrated recruitment rules to the Cabinet Division. The draft will be ready by October, the ministry sources added.
