CHENNAI: Madras High Court has directed the State government to hold more TET every year, to meet the shortage of teachers.

Passing orders on the writ petitions from G Nagarajan of MD Crane Middle School in Tindivanam and Chitra of Hindu Middle School, Madathur in Tirunelveli district, Justice D Hariparanthaman said TET was conducted only once from April 2013. But the requirement of teachers is aplenty. Therefore, the government should hold as many as TETs as possible so as to comply with the provisions of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009. In the absence of TET qualified teachers, aided schools have no other option but to appoint teachers without TET qualification, the judge pointed out.

After the RTE Act came into operation in 2010, it had become mandatory for government and aided schools to appoint candidates only after they clear the TET.
