SC seeks response of Centre, states on violation of Right to Education Act

RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT / TEACHER ELIGIBILITY TEST INDIA / NCTE GUIDELINES
 

Petition asked the states and the UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers every month.
   
The PIL, filed by the National Coalition for Education — a network of organisations fighting for the RTE — said at least 1.5 lakh schools and 12 lakh trained teachers were required to fulfill the goals envisaged under the RTE.

 It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.

"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said. The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act. 


 
A bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam issued notice and sought their response after summer vacation on a plea filed by an organisation, National Coalition for Education.
  
The plea said lack of resources and failure to implement provisions of the RTE Act has resulted in a significant decline in education performance.
  
Senior advocate Colin Gonsalves sought a direction to all the states to complete the required neighbourhood mapping within six months and new schools be constructed six months after completion of the process.
  
The petition asked the states and UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers to end the shortage of educators within a year.
  
It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.
  
"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said.
  
The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
  
"Based on the aforementioned facts, it is clear that the Right to Education is being violated across the country. These violations have persisted for years and remain today in face of the RTE Act's requirement that they be remedied within three years of it coming into force.
  
"And more troubling, they persist despite widespread awareness of their existence by various responsible governments and authorities and in the face of previous orders from this court on October 3, 2012 to remedy them," it said

ATET : 50% marks compulsory for appearing in TET: HC


ATET : 50% marks compulsory for appearing in TET: HC

ASSAM TET News -

GUWAHATI: The Gauhati high court in an order upheld the state education department's decision of making 50 per cent marks in graduation compulsory for candidates to appear in the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) for recruitment at the high school level.

Though the high court earlier in an interim order allowed eligible candidates even with less than 50 per cent marks in their graduation to apply for the TET examination following a prayer by the All Assam B.Ed Trained Unemployed Association, the high court in its final order upheld the state education ministry's decision.

The high court order came after the state's secondary education department said the new criteria for the high school teachers is a process to find better qualified teachers and was done according to an amendment in the Assam Secondary Education (provincialised services amendment) Rules.

The proposed TET exam for the high school teachers is slated to be held tentatively on the last week of February, 2013.

Earlier in the petition, the association had expressed its displeasure over the state education ministry's decision and demanded its withdrawal. Members of the association said in the B.Ed course, one is given training on all aspects of teaching.

"One is not only taught about teaching methodologies and child pedagogy, but is also given administrative skills. The B.Ed degree itself suggests that a person is fully qualified to teach in the high school level. Making TET compulsory will only lower the importance of the course," said the association president Ashiruddin Talukdar.

The association demanded that B.Ed qualified candidates should be exempted from writing TET, remove the basic 50 per cent criteria for appearing in TET and to raise the age limit from 38 years to 50 years for high school.

"Competitive examinations like IAS do not keep such criteria. Students securing less than 50 per cent in their graduation have qualified such competitive examinations," said a member of the association.

The association had sent memorandums to chief minister Tarun Gogoi and the state's education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

After SC order, it’s zealous recruitment phase

Appointment of teachers under RTE Act

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Feb 9: Bolstered by the Supreme Court’s directive setting aside a Gauhati High Court order to pave the way for recruiting more elementary school teachers in Assam, the State Government on Thursday announced that 40,800 teachers would be given appointments under the Right to Education (RTE) Act.

Addressing a press conference at the Secretariat here, State Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that it would be the biggest ever recruitment drive undertaken by a government department in the history of Assam. “On February 15, advertisement for the recruitments of 28,000 teachers at both the lower and upper primary levels will be published. Though the 28,000 posts are contractual, the salary structure, other benefits and number of leave days will be the same as that of the regular posts,’’ he said, adding: “Advertisement for the 12,800 regular posts will be published on April 15.”

The High Court, in its March 5, 2010 ruling, had imposed a ban on “further recruitment of teachers in upper and lower primary schools of the State, be it on regular, ad-hoc or contractual basis”. An apex court bench of Justice Deepak Verma and Justice KS Radhakrishnan lifted the ban on a petition by the Assam Government contending that it was making it difficult to run schools.

Sarma further stated that the candidates who had passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) held recently should submit their job application forms online and a candidate could appear in the interview for the teacher’s post in four to five districts. “The interview process for the 28,000 posts will begin from March 15 and the appointment will be given before Rongali Bihu. By May 30, the appointments for the 12,800 posts will be completed,’’ he said, adding: “The selection of candidates will be based on merit that also includes the candidates’ TET and HS percentages and viva.”

Proper implementation of the RTE Act in Assam has raised the demand of recruitment of more teachers and setting up of more schools in the State. “A total of 95,000 teachers are required to properly implement the RTE Act in the State as the Act demands one lower primary school within1-kilometer radius and one upper primary school within 3-kilometer radius all over the State. We are now carrying out a survey to find out the number of new schools required to be set up in the State,” said Sarma.

Currently 565 contractual posts of teachers are lying vacant in Baska district, 2,000 in Barpeta district, 603 in Bongaigaon district, 2000 in Cachar district, 446 in Chirang district, 1100 in Darrang district, 1000 in Dhemaji district, 3,447 in Dhubri district, 760 in Dibrugarh district, 366 in Dima Hasao district, 1,700 in Goalpara district, 750 in Golaghat district, 838 in Hailakandi district, 672 in Jorhat district, 1,108 in both Kamrup district and Kamrup (Metro) district, 1,700 in Karbi Anglong district, 1,900 in Karimganj district, 1,100 in Kokrajhar district, 842 in Lakhimpur district, 1,500 in Morigaon district, 3,000 in Nagaon district, 300 in Nalbari district, 600 in Sivasagar district, 1,521 in Sonitpur district, 800 in Tinsukia district and 600 in Udalguri district.

Databank of Teachers


Databank of Teachers

According to the Statistics of School Education (2009-10), the total number of teachers in the country from pre-primary to senior secondary is 67.23 lakh. To meet the Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) norms specified under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009, the Government has sanctioned 8.17 lakh additional teachers posts between 2010 and 2012 under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) 

The Government has taken several steps for preparing and providing quality teachers. The Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Teacher Education for the XII Plan envisages establishment of District Institutes of Education and Training in all districts created upto March, 2011 and of Block Institutes of Teacher Education for expanding capacity of teacher preparation. The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) grants recognition to institutions for starting programmes of teacher education. Several State Governments have also taken steps to expand teacher preparation capacity. In pursuance of the RTE Act, the NCTE has laid down the minimum teacher qualifications, including the requirement of passing the Teacher Eligibility Test as an essential qualification for being eligible for appointment as a teacher. Under the Sarva Shisksha Abhiyan, financial assistance is provided to the State Governments to enable the teachers of class I-VIII not possessing the minimum qualifications to acquire the same by 2015, and for training of in-service teachers for improving quality. 

This information was given by Dr. D. Purandeswari, Minister of State for Human Resource Development in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
