Bihar govt. set a yardstick of CTET for candidates to become government teachers in state

Patna: Bihar government has taken a bold decision in the appointment of teachers in government schools. Candidates don’t need to appear for STET (State Teacher’s Eligibility Test). All the teachers will be appointed through the CTET (Central Teacher’s Eligibility Test) itself.

This would give a sigh of relief to aspiring teachers as now they only need to crack CTET for a teaching post in the Bihar government’s schools. They don’t need to appear in STET anymore.

As per the media reports, the Bihar government passed its decision to the Bihar School Examination Committee, i.e. Bihar Board, which is responsible for organising the teacher recruitment examination in Bihar.

The Bihar School Examination Committee is expected to give this information to the Patna High Court too.

The letter issued by Ravi Prakash, Director, Directorate of Primary Education, Government of Bihar, said:

“In the meeting held on April 26, 2022 in relation to the teacher eligibility test under the chairmanship of the Additional Chief Secretary, it has been decided that in the Bihar Panchayat Preliminary School Service Rules 2020, under the provisions made, the qualification prescribed for teacher appointment includes passing the teacher eligibility test conducted by the Central or Bihar Government.”

The CTET Examination is held every year and is organised by the Central Government. It is considered that holding the separate examination STET is not essential for the eligibility of teachers’ recruitment in government schools in the state.

The teachers’ recruitment exam in the state came into force in 2011. Since then, several rounds of examinations have been held in Bihar.

It is a positive move on the part of the state government as the level of teachers is below par. The majority of government school teachers lack fundamental knowledge of their subjects. The decision by the government is expected to improve the teaching standards in Bihar’s government schools.
