High school teachers in state face quality test
BHUBANESWAR: The state government has decided to conduct Odisha Secondary School Teacher Eligibility Test (OSSTET) for high school teachers with an aim to ensure quality of education at secondary school level.
The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) will be in charge of conducting the examination. "Although it was decided to conduct the OSSTET since 2014, the BSE is yet to decide the dates and other modalities of the examination," said BSE chairman, D P Nanda.
However, secondary education director, Ratnakar Rout, said notification for the test will be announced soon.
There are around 76,000 teachers, teaching in as many as 7,000 high schools in the state.
The OSSTET certificates will be valid for seven years and there shall be no restriction on the number of attempts a person can take for acquiring the certificate. The annual test will have multiple choice questions. The minimum pass mark in each subject is 60% for general category students and 50% for SC, ST, physically handicapped and OBC categories, official sources said.
Several teachers' associations are opposed to the test, saying that the government should ensure infrastructure and address issues concerning salary and basic facilities to the teachers, first.
"Around 40,000 teachers belong to block grant schools where they don't get salary, but monthly remuneration. Of the 22,000 government teachers, a large number are on the verge of retirement, while over 19,000 posts are lying vacant. Who is the government conducting the test for," asked Odisha Secondary School Teachers Association general secretary, Prakash Chandra Mohanty.
Many teachers rued that the BSE should conduct orientation programmes and refreshers courses for teachers in regular intervals, but no such event has been held for years.
