The Uttar Pradesh government is preparing to make the qualification of qualifying Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) mandatory for the recruitment of teachers in madrassas of the state. To provide quality education in madrasas, the state government is preparing a proposal in this regard. State’s Minister of State for Minority Welfare, Danish Azad Ansari told PTI on Sunday that the state government will make TET certificate mandatory in the recruitment of teachers in madrassas. A proposal is being prepared for this.
Ansari, however, clarified that the requirement of TET will not apply to teachers of Urdu, Arabic, Farsi or Diniyat. It will be applicable only on the recruitment of teachers teaching NCERT syllabus. To a question whether the managing committees of madrassas have the legal authority to recruit teachers, whether the government would make any changes in the law to make TET mandatory in recruitment, Ansari said, “No, nothing like that will happen. All we are going to do is to make TET qualification mandatory in the recruitment of modern education teachers in madrassas.
Discrimination among madrasa teachers will be encouraged
In 2017, the Uttar Pradesh government had approved teaching from NCERT books in Tathaniya (Classes I to V), Faukania (Classes V to VIII) and Madarsas of Aliya or Uchhi Aaliya level (high school and above). Hakim Abdul Haque, Joint General Secretary of Teachers Association Madaris Arabiya, said about the preparation of TET mandatory for madrasa teacher recruitment, that this would encourage discrimination among madrasa teachers.
