Agartala, November 25: In a recurring tradition, candidates aspiring to become teachers gathered once again on Saturday morning to press for job opportunities in 2022. Their unified demand is for the swift and simultaneous recruitment of all eligible candidates. This time-honored practice has become a staple in the state’s pursuit of teaching positions.
The modus operandi involves clearing the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) exam and subsequently advocating for collective recruitment. In a pattern consistent with previous years, candidates from the preceding year have been staging protests for the past few months, expressing their anticipation for job placements.
The candidates have taken their protests to various locations, including the TRBT office and education buildings, emphasizing their demand for jobs. On Saturday, the aspirants congregated at the city center in the capital, where they urged the government to expedite the release of exam results to facilitate a comprehensive appointment process.
According to the candidates, teacher recruitment is presently on hold in the state, resulting in a severe shortage of educators in state schools. They argue that the perceived complexity of government regulations is no longer an impediment, asserting that swift appointments are within the government’s capacity. However, the candidates lamented what they perceive as unnecessary delays in the recruitment process. The situation highlights the ongoing struggle between aspiring teachers and the government, with the former calling for prompt action to address the pressing need for educators in the state.
