Dehradun: The Uttarahand high court on Thursday heard a bunch of petitions filed by aspiring teachers with diploma in elementary education (D.El.Ed). The petitions urge the court to direct the state government to include them in the ongoing teacher recruitment process.
The petitioners have pointed out that they received D.El.Ed training in 2019 through distance education medium of National Institute of Open Schooling. Their diploma is recognized by the Union ministry of human resources and the National Council for Teacher Education. Therefore, they should be included in the primary teacher recruitment process.
However, the state government excluded them from the recruitment drive through an order on February 10, 2021. In its order, the education department stated that only those candidates who have completed the D.El.Ed course in regular mode would be appointed as primary teachers in the state. Notably, the D.El.Ed course in regular mode is two years long while the course in distance mode gets completed within 18 months.
After hearing the petitions on Thursday, the high court division bench of Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice RC Khulbe reserved its decision .
Currently, the state is recruiting for 2,648 vacant primary teacher positions.
