ReT Teacher’s screening test row: Teachers furious while Edu Min gained respect

Srinagar, August 5: A major controversy has been sparked up in the state after the education department has decided to conduct a eligibility cum screening test for around 65,000 Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teachers. An online debate has been generated when the Education Minister Naeem Akhter today wrote on social networking site Facebook that it is important to conduct the test as it will restore the dignity of teachers in the state.

The people supported the move saying it will improve the standards of education in the state where the education sector is already struggling.

“It is a good move to have screening test for intending teachers. There is essential need for setting a standard in the Education Department for teachers. It is an irony that a person who is unable to get a clerk’s job in Power, Revenue or Irrigation Department lands in the Education Department as teacher,” wrote journalist Rashid Ahmad on Facebook.

The teachers, however, have opposed this decision of the High Court and has launched an agitation against the government to conduct screening test of in-service teachers. T

    Communicating with children especially with primary school students is a real talent and a key to growing intelligence in young minds that unlocks their potential. Every good teacher needs to have this talent. This reality should have been discovered long back well before our society was discovered as corrupt one. If this fact has been now realized, it is never late, we should welcome the move, as this will be the real investment towards building a healthy society.
