No more expulsions in PEC examinations: Govt informs HC


The government informed the High Court on Wednesday that no children will be expelled during the Primary Education Completion (PEC) examinations from now on.

Director General of Directorate of Primary Education informed the bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman about the government’s decision.

The bench then dissolved a ruling on the matter.

Advocate Jamiul Haque Faisal represented the writ petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukdar stood for the state. Shafik Mahmud represented the DG.

In a suo moto rule on November 21 last year, the bench asked the authorities concerned to explain why the expulsion of children during PEC examinations should not be declared illegal.
