Rift erupts among TET teachers
An internal rift has broken out among Assam Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET) teachers as TET Sikshak Joutha Mancha has asked the TET qualified teachers to boycott the protest organised by the All Assam TET Teachers Association on September 13.
TET Sikshak Joutha Mancha on Wednesday decided not to co-operate in the protest organised by All Assam TET Teachers Association. They further asked the primary TET qualified teachers not to participate in the protest as they termed the discussion with the Education Minister was fruitful.
“We held a discussion with the Education Minister regarding our demand on September 2 and we are satisfied with the assurance given by the minister. So we do not want the discussion to go in vain and urge the teachers not to participate in the protest organised by the All Assam TET Teachers Association,” said a member of TET Sikshak Joutha Mancha in Guwahati. The member further said that the education minister has assured them to take initiative to regularize the job of contractual TET qualified teachers in the State.
It may be mentioned here that the All Assam TET Teachers Association has decided that they would stage a demonstration on September 13 in front of the office of the Elementary Officer in every district. If that fails to grip the State government’s attention, then the association threatened to launch the ‘Delhi Chalo’ agitation.
