TET TAT HTAT UPDATES

Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Reform Bill passed in the Legislative Assembly 

Subject to the judgment of the Supreme Court and the Gujarat High Court

TAT examination is mandatory for appointment of principal-teacher in minority educational institutions of the state : - Minister of Education Shri



From the selection of quality principals and teachers in minority institutions

There will be a brighter opportunity to unleash the power of the students 

Secondary-North Basic School approved by any department other than Education Department will also be considered as 'Recognized School' from now on 

Education Minister Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama during the discussion of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Reforms Bill in the Legislative Assembly clearly stated that from now on the appropriate qualification along with TAT examination for appointment of principals and teachers will also be implemented in minority educational institutions in the state

He added that the bill contains amendments consistent with the Supreme Court and the Gujarat High Court's occasional judgment on the implementation of proper qualifications for the appointment of principals and teachers in minority educational institutions

Giving more details in this regard, the Education Minister Shri Chudasama added that the process of selection of candidates in government and subsidized private secondary and higher secondary schools is being implemented in the state through centralized system 

But such selection procedure is carried out without considering the important marks of the TAT examination prescribed by the minority institutions to meet the eligibility for selection as a teacher

He added that as a result, the state government as well as grant-in-aid schools do not maintain the prescribed standards for quality selection of teachers and as the selection process is not based on the results of TAT examination in minority institutions, quality principals, teachers cannot be selected in a neutral manner

Citing the Supreme Court's judgment in this regard, the Education Minister said that the court has made it clear that no compromise should be made with the quality of education in the national interest irrespective of whether the educational institution is run by a minority or a majority.  The government's decision to set up a regulatory body for the appointment of teachers does not interfere in the administration of minority institutions.

The Education Minister further added that the Gujarat High Court has also issued a judgment in 2017 directing to make necessary amendments in Section 30 (a) of the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Act-19.

Accordingly, earlier in minority schools, the Board of Governors conducted the recruitment process without considering the educational qualification of the candidate and taking into account the marks of the TAT examination.

Now, as a result of the passage of this amendment bill, the same centralized selection process for teacher-principal candidates in government and aided private secondary higher secondary schools in the state will now be implemented in minority institutions.  Mr. Chudasama added.

He added that the availability of quality principals and teachers even in minority institutions would improve the existing quality of education of minorities as well as brighten the strength and opportunities of the students of such institutions.

Regarding another provision of the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Reforms Bill, the Education Minister said that the definition of currently recognized schools includes only the secondary or post-primary schools recognized by the Director of Education of the State of Gujarat or the officer authorized by him for this purpose.

According to the amendment bill, such a recognized school will now be considered as a recognized school, namely the Department of Education of the State Government or any other department or, as the case may be, a recognized secondary school or a North Basic School recognized by an official authorized by such department.
