A kindergarten has been running illegally for months inside the DK Ideal Syed Atahar Ali Academy Secondary School in Dasar, Madaripur. And the kindergarten is managed by DK Ideal Syed Atahar Ali Academy and College teacher.
Locals including teachers, students and students of the school said that Ekram Hossain, a teacher of DK Ideal Syed Atahar Ali Academy and College, is running the kindergarten. It is known that after the transfer of campus of D.K Ideal College from North Dassar to South Dassar, the classrooms of D.K College went under the secondary school. After that the college teacher Ekram Hossain started a commercial school kindergarten inside the school. Running Kindergarten and High School on the same campus is disrupting the educational program.
Ekram Hossain D.K college teacher and his wife D.K secondary school teacher with all the benefits including salary and allowances of the MPO institution how is he using the campus of the school to run a private kindergarten? Parents and students raised such questions.
Sabid, a 10th class student of the school said, we cannot do group classes due to classroom shortage and sometimes we have to sit. Since we are science students, we have to go to the laboratory for group classes, but the kindergarten school runs in the room next to the laboratory, but we are not able to do the classes.
Another student Meghla said, Kindergarten school runs in our classroom. For this reason, we sit in the laboratory without getting the opportunity of class. Kindergarten children shout and shout, causing problems in our class. We can’t concentrate in class.
Delwar Hossain, head teacher of D.K Secondary School, said that our school and college president DC sir is holding a meeting regarding the kindergarten school. He will hold another meeting and decide whether the kindergarten school will be run using the school room or not. But since the meeting has not yet taken place, the kindergarten management has started. And I am telling the principal of the college, Sir, the problem of the class room of our students. He says ok I will see.
Upazila secondary education officer Mahbub Hossain said that there is a kindergarten inside the school, it was not known. I came to know through you. Looking for it.
Dasar upazila executive officer Sarmin Yachmin said, I do not know about this and I have not received any complaint. I will look into the complaint.
Tried several times to contact Madaripur Deputy Commissioner on phone but he was not available.
