HYDERABAD: Teachers from private schools are now eyeing for jobs in the government schools. With the government announcing thousands of jobs, most teachers in various private schools have resigned to prepare for District Selection Committee (DSC) exam to be held in August last week.
The private school managements have been getting poor response for recruiting teachers afresh. A private college principal, N Kiriti Reddy from Deverakonda in Nalgonda district said neither BEd or DEd qualified candidates were ready to teach in private schools. He said that his school had 19 BEd and DEd qualified candidates out of which five have resigned Only those who did not have either BEd or DEd qualification remained.
Another private school owner from Mahabubnagar district, Md Ibrahim said they have lost all the expert faulty with the DSC notification. Ibrahim’s school also lost more than 10 faculty members out of the 30. They were only able to recruit candidates with degree and Intermediate qualification during the fresh recruitments.
As the state government had postponed the DSc examination from May first week to August last week, these private schools will have no qualified faulty members. As the government had issued DSc and model school notification before the commencement of SSC examinations, the schools had a difficult time to prepare their students for SSC board examinations.
The state government had issued DSc notification to recruit more than 2,100 teacher posts. The DSc examination will be held in the last week of August.
The reason for teachers leaving private schools for government schools is the attractive pay packet. Following the sixth pay commission salary reforms, the starting salary in government schools range between Rs 18,000 to 20,000 per month.
