NCTB staff suspended over textbook mistakes
Staff Correspondent: Following the embarrassing errors in this year’s school textbooks, National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) today suspended its artist-cum-designer.
Sujaul Abedin was suspended after a primary investigation report of NCTB-formed probe body, said a handout issued by the board this evening.
Earlier on Monday, the board sent two officials to ‘officer on special duty’ – a position that is without desk and portfolio – on the same ground.
The OSD officials are: Pritish Kumar Sarkar, chief editor of NCTB, and Lana Humayra Khan, senior expert of the board, said an official handout issued by the education ministry yesterday.
In addition to this, the secondary and higher secondary divisions of the education ministry formed a three-member probe body to find out the people responsible for the mistakes.
