Question paper leakage continues: Incompetence is everywhere
A local daily reported that DU authorities filed a case under Digital Security Act against six persons and their unnamed accomplices in connection with question paper fraudulence of 'Gha' unit entry test held on Friday. Law enforcers said the arrestees leaked the question in exchange of three lakh taka. Analyzing the seized electronic device from the suspects, it was found that they shared question through a messenger, WhatsApp and other social media to admission seekers. Earlier in August, intelligence agencies busted question leaking rackets where they found nine people including government officials and teachers were involved. How powerful the gang was could be understood by their capacity to leak out questions and figure-out that by using electronic devices just 10 minutes before the exams began.
Eminent educationists are anxious over the recent spate of question paper leaks that are worsening the country's education system that is already in a shambles. They urged the government to prevent the menace by taking timely and effective measures before the exams are held. The education system is so broken that it not only does the evaluation inadequately but also gives young ones an early introduction to corruption.
We cannot expect any improvement from a government where the ministers need not to be competent because bureaucrats run the government. Â
