Stop school-level politics
The Daily Star published a letter titled “Don't bring politics into schools” on December 15, 2017. The writer of the letter was shocked to hear the formal declaration of school committees by the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), but the reality is that such committees already exist in many schools, though informally.
Student politics used to be a platform for those who want to lead the nation. Nowadays, however, it has become a path to amassing money illegally and gaining political influence.
For long, student politics was limited to college and universities. Now as politics have entered the boundaries of the school, it will seriously harm our secondary education system and its students. The government and society should not allow teenagers and children to be involved in political activities through such means.
