Education department changes eligibility criteria for primary teachers


AHMEDABAD: The state education department has made changes in the eligibility criteria for getting a job as a primary school teacher. The changes come following a recent high court order. Sources said that the education department has now decided that all candidates who have completed their BSc with any subject as principal subject will now be eligible for applying for the primary teacher’s post. Earlier, BSc with selected 6 subjects was the eligibility.
Similarly, the education department has added three subjects as eligibility criteria for BA degree holders. Now, those who have a BA degree with psychology, philosophy and sociology will be able to apply for a primary teacher’s job.
Sources said that the Gujarat high court recently had ordered a change in minimum eligibility criteria for assistant teachers. The court had asked the state to consider BA graduates with sociology, philosophy and psychology as their principal subject for the job. Similarly, the court had also directed the state to consider BSc graduates with any principal subject who have cleared TAT-2 exam as eligibility criteria for primary teachers’ posts.
Sources said that soon after the court’s order a proposal was made to change the eligibility criteria which was under consideration so far. Recently, the education department issued a resolution making changes in the eligibility.
