Freelancers can provide coaching: HC

The High Court today categorically said the teachers of government and private schools, colleges and madrasas cannot take coaching class.

However, the educated people, who are not teachers of such academic institutions, but work as freelancer can provide coaching, it said.

The bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil came up with the observation when the Anti-Corruption Commission’s lawyer Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan appeared before it for moving a case.

Recently the lawyer mistakenly told a private television channel that the no coaching centres can run following the HC’s February 7 verdict. His comment came to the notice of the HC judges.

Following five separate writ petitions, the HC bench on February 7 upheld the government policy framed in 2012 to stop “coaching business” by the teachers of government and private educational institutions.

Today, the HC said its February 7 verdict means the teachers of government and private schools, colleges and madrasas cannot coach students.

Deputy Attorney General Mokhlesur Rahman and Advocate Khurshid Alam told The Daily Star that freelancer educated people like medical and Buet students can coach SSC and HSC examinees for helping them to take preparations for the examinations following the HC verdict.
