Bangladeshi 672 School-teachers and Librarians Awarded 2015. A total of 672 school-teachers and librarians, who successfully helped students develop reading habits, have been awarded this year. Bangladeshi 672 School-teachers and Librarians Awarded 2015.

The awards were given under the Govt's Secondary Education Quality and Access Enhancement Program (SEQAEP), currently being implemented by the Kendro.

The ceremony was held at BSK's (Bishwo Shahitto Kendro) office in the capital. The awardees were chosen from 6,668 teachers and librarians from 9,618 secondary government and non-government schools and madrasas of 215 upazilas of the country. Yesterday, 121 from Dhaka division received the award.

Under this project, students from class-VI to X get the opportunity to read 10 to 16 Bangla and four English books every year. The students also sit for an assessment examination once they complete reading the books.

The chief guest, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said, "We can't prepare our children for the modern world by imparting the usual, traditional education".

Sharif Md. Masud, core team leader of the Kendro project said, "Many of the teachers, who also work as librarians, do not get enough time to perform this task. Besides, there is no library hour for the children to borrow and return books. They have to do it between two classes or during the Tiffin break or after the end of the day's classes."

Many librarians were treated as class III employees by teachers of non-government schools, although their pay-scale equaled that of a junior teacher, he added.

Government schools and madrasas do not have a librarian post yet, he said. Professor Fahima Khatun, director general, Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education, promised to keep one hour per week for library use for each class. Bangladeshi 672 School-teachers and Librarians Awarded 2015.
