Shortage of so many primary school teachers impacting teaching

SHORTAGE of over 45,003 teachers in primary schools is severely affecting education of our younger students and it is highly dismaying that most such posts remain vacant over the last five years. The vacancies include 17,516 posts of head teachers and 27,388 assistant teachers in 64,122 government primary schools where 3.43 lakh sanctioned post of teachers exit to teach over 1.34 crore students
Such big shortage of teachers suggests a big mismatch in the classroom teaching where most classes are either going unattended or teachers are taking additional classes compromising the quality of teaching. Most schools at Upazila and rural level are working with two teachers instead of five. Moreover shortage of so many head teachers in schools means Assistant Teachers are discharging their duty at huge loss of discipline and avoiding teaching.   
In fact the primary education is not only suffering from mindless neglect of the government, the entire education system is breaking apart with recruitment of highly politicized low quality teachers. In our system syndicates are leaking question papers in which teachers are having their hands. They are running admission business at public and private educational institutions while wealthy people are opening private universities to mint overnight fortune. One can now buy a certificate for any degree bribing the system and it means there is hardly any need to create an excellent education system to create highly qualified manpower for the nation.  
This is what is our education system where shortage of primary teachers and deplorable condition of primary school buildings at many places across the country are not much to bother the government. Corruption is now eating the bigger part of our education budget and mismanagement of resources is helping vested interest people in and outside the government to amass wealth. So our concern is how the government is handling the entire education system and the primary education in particular.  
It is not acceptable why we have shortage of so many teachers when we have money and thousands of graduates overcrowding for employment. The fact of the matter is that recruitment of primary school teachers is suffering in absence of a strong political initiative marred with inefficiency of government agencies to take effective move for recruitment. It now requires candidates to appear for written and vocal test when the system is overwhelmingly politicized from the grassroots. Moreover we are appalled by the absence of any focused initiative for training primary teachers for skilled development under any government funded incentive programme.
We must say the government must stop low quality expenditures such as recapitalization of public banks', which have been robbed by politically powerful people. We would ask the authorities to stop corruption with government money and put additional resources for teachers' recruitment. Any neglect is not acceptable here.
