SC seeks response of Centre, states on violation of Right to Education Act

SC seeks response of Centre, states on violation of Right to Education Act



RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT / TEACHER ELIGIBILITY TEST INDIA / NCTE GUIDELINES


Petition asked the states and the UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers every month.
   

The PIL, filed by the National Coalition for Education — a network of organisations fighting for the RTE — said at least 1.5 lakh schools and 12 lakh trained teachers were required to fulfill the goals envisaged under the RTE.

 It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.

"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said. The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act. 






 
A bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam issued notice and sought their response after summer vacation on a plea filed by an organisation, National Coalition for Education.
  
The plea said lack of resources and failure to implement provisions of the RTE Act has resulted in a significant decline in education performance.
  
Senior advocate Colin Gonsalves sought a direction to all the states to complete the required neighbourhood mapping within six months and new schools be constructed six months after completion of the process.
  
The petition asked the states and UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers to end the shortage of educators within a year.
  
It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.
  
"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said.
  
The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
  
"Based on the aforementioned facts, it is clear that the Right to Education is being violated across the country. These violations have persisted for years and remain today in face of the RTE Act's requirement that they be remedied within three years of it coming into force.
  
"And more troubling, they persist despite widespread awareness of their existence by various responsible governments and authorities and in the face of previous orders from this court on October 3, 2012 to remedy them," it said

नई दिल्ली (ब्यूरो)। देशभर के स्कूलों में शिक्षकों और संसाधनों की कमी के चलते शिक्षा के अधिकार कानून (आरटीई) के उल्लंघन के आरोप पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने शुक्रवार को केंद्र व सभी राज्य सरकारों से जवाब तलब किया। सर्वोच्च अदालत में दायर याचिका में इस कानून पर सही तरीके से अमल कराने के लिए सरकारों को निर्देश जारी करने की मांग की गई है।

PSTET : Stressful Sunday: Over 7-hour protest by unemployed TET teachers chokes the city


PSTET : Stressful Sunday: Over 7-hour protest by unemployed TET teachers chokes the city


PSTET / Punjab Teacher Eligibility Test / Recruitment News

It was a harrowing Sunday for the residents of the city who had to battle complete traffic chaos as the heart of the city, Bharat Nagar Chowk, was blocked by hundreds of unemployed teachers from all over Punjab who were demanding jobs and protesting against the state government.

More than 14,000 teachers who have passed Teacher's Eligibility Test (TET) in 2011 and 2013 are jobless and have been fighting for their rights for the past two years.



On Monday, the teachers first gathered opposite the mini-secretariat and raised slogans against the government and then they went on to do 'chakka jaam' and blocked traffic at Bharat Nagar Chowk.

The commuters had to battle traffic jams throughout the day as the protest which started around 12 noon went on till late evening as there was no response from the administration to the protesting teachers.

Till the filing of this report, the teachers were still sitting on the Ferozepur road at Bharat Nagar Chowk and traffic police was diverting the traffic from Jagraon bridge to Mata Rani Chowk and from the bus stand to Kochar market.

Hundreds of police personnel were deployed to avoid any untoward incident but the protest remained peaceful.

Deep Raja, from TET Passed Unemployed Teachers' Union, Punjab, told Ludhiana Newsline: "We held multiple meetings with CM but with zero results. He has given nothing except assurances. Despite more than 40,000 posts lying vacant, we 14,000 teachers even after clearing TET are unemployed. After various efforts, the government advertised 5,078 posts but after that advertisement, nothing has been done to recruit those who applied. So now when nothing is happening, protest is the only way to make the government hear our voice. These protests will be intensified till our demands are met."

ADCP Joginder Singh had summoned the teachers to call off their protest and promised fixing of a meeting with Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal. "They are assuring us a meeting with Deputy CM. So now for time being, we are planning to end the protest," Raja added.

PSTET : 1,000 teachers block road, want jobs to be regularised


PSTET : 1,000 teachers block road, want jobs to be regularised



PSTET / Punjab Teacher Eligibility Test / Recruitment News




Around 1,000 teachers from all parts of Punjab on Sunday gathered in the city and protested against the state government, demanding regularisation of their jobs.

The teachers from the primary and upper primary segments have been waiting for the regularisation of their jobs since their appointment from 2004 to 2009 and some of them have not even received their salaries for the past 2-3 months.

The teachers first gathered at Dana Mandi and then raised slogans against the state government and proceeded towards GT Road, which they blocked for almost four hours.

A heavy police force was seen on duty barricading the area, but unlike in previous incidents, the protest remained peaceful and no violence was reported.

Ajmer Aulakh, Punjab president of Shiksha Provider Teacher's Union, talking to Newsline, said, "We are more than 7,400 teachers who were appointed from 2004 to 2009 and even after so many years we are waiting for regularisation of our jobs. 

After so many years of appointment government is asking us to clear TET exam (Teachers Eligibility Test) to get regularisation. We want exemption from TET and regularisation of our job."

He added that several meetings with education minister Sikander Singh Maluka and CM Parkash Singh Badal were unfruitful and if their demands are not met, protests will continue all over the state.

The teachers who started protest at around 3 pm lifted it only after around four hours, after getting assurance from the district administration of a meeting with the CM. "The deputy commissioner was not available today but we have been assured of a meeting with the CM in this week. If meeting does not happen, agitation will continue," said Aulakh.
