B.Ed Degree for CBSE CTET: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in its latest notification for Kendriya Vidyalayas has excluded BEd degree holders from the primary level of the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) (class 1 to 5). According to the B.Ed Students that CBSE is ignoring the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) norms by not including students who pursued the Bachelor of Education for Paper primary level in the Central Teacher Eligibility Test. Those who have qualified to study B.Ed are eligible only for paper II this time.
According to the latest NCTE norms, B.Ed students can be appointed at the primary level, though they are trained to teach the higher classes. Earlier according to NCTE, only diploma students were eligible for Primary (I to VII) and students with bachelor’s degree were eligible for teaching higher classes (VII to XII).
Students have also written a letter to the Human Resources Ministry in this regard. Explain that in this regard, the Central Teacher Eligibility Examination Unit was also informed by a prayer letter. But the Central Teacher Eligibility Examination Unit has not yet taken any thought on this.
All India B.Ed Colleges General Secretary, Mr Ramdas said, that “Nationwide, the number of diploma students are less, whereas Bachelor students are more in number, but primary teachers are badly needed. Also students who are trained for teaching higher class can also teach primary class too, hence it would only be logical to consider B.Ed students for the primary level too. Many states Eligibility Tests (SET) are allowing B.Ed Degree holders for the primary level.”
Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javedkar in the recent Parliament session, introduced a bill to modify the teacher education with a four-year course, like the Regional Institute of Education (RIE). The bill was passed and it will be implemented after two years. Experts say that it was decided to give a chance to the current B.Ed students to apply for the primary too.
Students have taken to Twitter and are demanding CBSE do justice to B.Ed students by following NCTE norms. They have been tweeting with hashtags, #Justice4BEd and #primaryCTET4BEd since the day the notification was released.
