HYDERABAD: A public interest litigation has been filed in the High Court, seeking directions to the state government to receive applications also from Telugu medium candidates for the posts of principals, post-graduate teachers (PGT) and trained graduate teachers (TGT) in AP Model Schools established under the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) and to allow them to appear for the examination to be held on May 10 and 11 this year.

The petitioners, B Srinivasulu and others from Anantapur district, said they had completed B.Ed and MA in English medium and yet wanted the court to declare as illegal the action of the principal secretary (school education) and commissioner and director of school education that candidates interested in applying for the posts must have studied in the English medium at least at three levels as notified on February 6.

They submitted that RMSA established 355 model schools in the state which would start functioning from the next academic year.

Applications were invited for recruitment of teachers through Staff Selection Committee.

Telugu medium students will be deprived of the right to apply to the Model Schools, they said and sought the court's direction for deletion of the condition.
