HYDERABAD: Another petition has been filed before the Hyderabad High Court challenging the TS government’s decision in not including the candidature of the candidates who possess B.Ed and D.Ed degree in ‘Special Education’ for applying to Teachers’ Recruitment Test (TRT) to be conducted by the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC).
The petitioner “Telangana Inclusive Education Resource Teachers’ Association” (TIERTA) sought the court to stay the TRT process and to declare the GO 25 issued on Oct 10, 2017 to recruit 8,792 teacher posts in education department as illegal and violative of Article 14 and 16 of Constitution.
Stating that in 2005 the Rehabilitation Council of India has held that the candidates who passed the B.Ed in special education were equivalent to the general B.Ed candidates, the petitioner sought directions to the government to include the candidates who possess B.Ed and D.Ed degree in Special Education for applying to the posts of Secondary Grade Teachers / School Assistants in general schools.
When the above petition came up for hearing, the judge directed the registry to post the matter before the division bench as the petitioner challenged certain rules. The matter is now expected to come up for hearing on Monday.
