Panel to monitor first CTET Exam

The state government is going full steam ahead to ensure that its first Teacher Eligibility Test (TET), post-Right To Education Act (RTE) era, is a success. The school education ministry has announced the formation of district level monitoring committee to ensure that there are no glitches during the test scheduled for December 15.

In a note issued to district level education offices the ministry has informed that around five lakh candidates will appear for TET, which is now mandatory for candidates seeking employment as teachers. There will be eight members in each district committee which will be headed by the collector. The other members will include zilla parishad CEO, police chief or his/her representative, civic body's education department head, and remaining members from within the state's education department.

Mahesh Karajgaonkar, deputy director of education for Nagpur division said, "We have been conducting awareness meetings with district level officials of the education department so that they can disseminate information. This being the first TET, and a major one considering the number of applicants, the state wants to ensure that there is a perfect coordination among all stakeholders."
