At the same time, a bench of judges Anil Kumar Upadhyay overturned the education ministry’s order of December 7th last year to draw up new and separate merit lists, with DElEd candidates being preferred when hiring and BEd candidates being considered only after candidates with the other qualifications are accepted .

The HC noted that the decline in educational standards in the states over the past decade was a cause for concern for everyone. “The whole world had seen it on national television. The teachers (niyojit shikshak) did not correctly answer the names of 7 days of the week and 12 months of a calendar year. It seems that elementary school education is the most neglected area that needs deeper scrutiny to strengthen the backbone of education, ”she noted. It also noted that both types of candidates had passed the rigorous TET and DElEd’s preference is unfounded.
The state government stated that the two-year DElEd is a certified teacher training course that is specially designed and suitable for teaching students in classes I to V, while BEd is a bachelor’s degree program that is designed for teaching students in classes VI and designed and determined is Above.
