Shortage of headmasters
The government secondary schools have been playing a vital role in educating the children. But this sector has always been neglected. Most of the government secondary schools have been running without full-fledged headmasters year after year.
According to the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) data, the total number of government secondary schools in the country is 317 of which only 67 institutions have headmasters.
As a result, both the educational and the administrative work are being hampered. The authorities appoint someone from among the senior teachers as the acting headmaster.
Frankly speaking, these acting headmasters have little ideas about the rules and regulations of the education board, and of the administrative work. Moreover, in case of making any decision, the acting headmasters feel embarrassed.
The headmasters are the driving forces whose proper guidance makes the teachers confident, skilled and active. Headmasters are the catalyst that inspires teachers to be diligent and possess the vision in obtaining the goals of the schools and the nation as well. In the absence of full time and regular headmasters, the schools can not run properly.
So, I would like to request the government and the authorities concerned to appoint full time headmasters shortly to bring back educational environment in the schools.
