The government plans to regulate staffing in non-government schools, colleges and madrassas, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said today.
A commission will be set up by a month to regulate the recruitment of teachers, he told reporters in a press briefing at the education ministry.
The commission will conduct examinations for potential candidates, prepare merit list and recruit persons for vacant posts, the minister added.
The ministry received complaints of graft and irregularities in teacher selection in those institutions over the years, a ministry official said seeking anonymity.
