GUWAHATI: The all Assam High School TET passed candidates congratulated Dr. Ranoj Pegu for being appointed as the state Education Minister.
Further, the All Assam High School TET Qualified Association, 2020, president Anil Bora urged the government to backfill a minimum number of 8000 vacancies of teachers in the secondary schools.
In a statement the president said, "A huge number of posts of the assistant teachers in the secondary schools are still vacant. Consequently, the quality of education is affected in the secondary schools. Hence, for the betterment of the quality of education in the secondary schools, and considering the security of the aged candidates, the Secondary TET, Assam, 2020 passed candidates request for filling up a minimum number of 8000 vacancies of teachers in the secondary schools."
"This is a humble request to the Education Minister of Assam, to consider filling up a minimum of 8000 posts in the secondary schools of Assam," the president added.
Notably, the Secondary TET in Assam was held on 19th January, 2020 and the result was announced on 4th March, 2020.
A total number of 35,814 candidates sat for the examination, out of which a total number of 12032 candidates were declared as passed in the same.
Meanwhile, the Secondary Education Department also published an advertisement for the appointment of secondary teachers of a total number of 5746 posts on 11th September, 2020, out of which 4190 posts were filled up and were appointed on 5th February, 2021.
It is to be mentioned here that the number of posts filled up is very less compared to the number of total passed candidates in the secondary TET, Assam, 2020.
As a consequence, a huge number of Secondary TET passed candidates were left unemployed till date which is around 7842.
The secretary of the association, Mujakkir Hussain said, "Another problem arises for them, who are in the verge of their last age, according to the eligibility criteria of applying for the posts. Moreover, it seems to be very irrational comparing the academic marks of the older batches with those of the latest batches."
Hussain alleged that a very huge difference is seen in the academic marks of the older batches when compared to those of the latest batches. Further, these candidates are left unemployed as they could not compete with the younger candidates in the academic marks which led to hopelessness in their minds.
