What is to happen if India's education has such less quality teachers. Will our students get quality education?
The CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) was brought into action in the year 2011 by the Human Resource Development Ministry (MHRD) in order to improve the quality of teaching in schools after the enactment of the Right To Education Act.
As per the results announced on the 27th of December, 2012 around 7.95 lakh candidates had appeared for the exam. They were to teach the students of Class 6 to 8. And less than 48000 candidates got just pass percentage. If this is the present situation of teachers quality in education then guess, what would be the situation of the quality of B.Ed Degrees that are being provided in the nation.
CTET is held by CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education). This year almost around 9.40 lakh candidates had registered for the test. The exam took place in November 2012. Among them 7.96 lakh candidates had appeared for the test.
There were two set of papers. First paper was a mandatory paper in which only 0.91% candidates had passed the exam. Later, in the second paper it is just 4.45% who have passed the test. The sources revealed that their knowledge and performance in English, Mathematics and Environment Science was really Shocking.
