Nahid seeks joint efforts to end question paper leakage problem

'Dishonest teachers to be targeted through legislation'
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid urged on Thursday the students, guardians and teachers to come forward to bring an end to question paper leakage problem, reports UNB.

"Students must convince their parents that they don't want to adopt unfair means to pass the examinations rather they want to pass the examinations by dint of their merit and capability," the minister said.

The Education Minister came up with the observation at a stipend- giving ceremony to meritorious students of different colleges organised by Prime Minister's Education Assistance Trust at the International Language Institute Auditorium in the city.

Nahid said parents sometimes collect question papers for their children thinking about their good results but students have to make their parents understand that this is not the right way.

He claimed that some parents tell their children that they are coming with question papers keeping them awake. "This means parents, in some cases, are responsible for encouraging their children to adopt unfair means."

Nahid said the government has taken all necessary steps to minimise the question paper leakage but some corrupt teachers are involved in such heinous acts.

"When teachers go to receive the question papers for their respective institutions, they leak the question papers midway by taking photos with their smart phones and sell these question papers at Tk 5,000 to 0.3 million (3 lakh)," he said blaming a section of teachers behind such scams.

Meanwhile, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid told Parliament on Thursday that his ministry has drafted legislation targeting unscrupulous teachers, reports UNB.

"Lack of legislation is the main barrier against dealing with dishonest teachers. So we have formulated a law in this regard. We hope to place the bill in Parliament in its next session," he said replying to a supplementary question from the ruling party MP Fazilatun Nasa Bappy (Reserved Seat-30).

Nahid said some unscrupulous teachers sell answers to students in the examination centre and leak question papers hours before the exam for money.
