The CBSE has now mandated that any new teacher recruited for standard I-VIII must have cleared the government-approved teachers' eligibility test. The central board has amended its affiliation by-law number 53 with immediate effect to implement the new guidelines across all schools in the country.
As per the decision, teachers who want to join any CBSE-affiliated school (for Std I-VIII) must have passed the Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) or the Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) which is conducted by the state government. The newly introduced CTET is already proving to be a 'killer exam' going by the results of the two tests held so far. In the first edition of CTET held in 2011, about 87% teachers failed while 93% failed in the test held earlier this year. Even though the new recruitment rules give an option to new teachers to clear either CTET or the much easier TET, in reality there is no choice. Since CTET is conducted by the CBSE itself, every affiliated-school management would prefer recruiting candidates who meet the central board's criteria. This has now become a big challenge for schools that have already started the recruitment process. Teachers react strongly against CBSE decision.
