B.Ed. Graduates ineligible for post of primary school teachers says Supreme Court
The core of the dispute consists a notification dated 28.06.2018, issued by the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE)
The Supreme Court has upheld the decision of the Rajasthan High Court which had made B.Ed. (Bachelor of Education) degree holders ineligible for appointment to the post of primary school teachers.
The bench comprising Justice Aniruddha Bose and Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia opined that the fundamental right of primary education in India as guaranteed under Article 21A of the Indian Constitution as well as the Right to Education Act, 2009 not just included 'free' and 'compulsory' education for children below 14 years of age but also included 'quality' education to be imparted in such children.
As per the Supreme Court, B.Ed. degree holders did not pass the basic pedagogical threshold require for teaching primary classes and thus would not be able to provide 'quality' education to primary school children.
The core of the dispute consists a notification dated 28.06.2018, issued by the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE).
