Hundreds of Teacher Eligibility Test (TET)-qualified teachers on Friday staged sit-in protest across the State demanding immediate regularisation of all contractual TET teachers with pay protection. The teachers protested in front of the office of the Elementary Officer in every district and were seen shouting slogans such as “No Regular, No Rest! We want justice!”
The protest was called by Sodou Axom Prathomik TET Uttirna Sikshak Samaj (All Assam Primary TET-Qualified Teachers’ Association), a body of TET-qualified teachers.
“Instead of solving our problems, the Education Minister, who is known for making controversial statements, has been escalating them,” said a protesting teacher in Barpeta.
