The JAC and BSEB pass-outs are feeling betrayed because in the process of teachers’ appointment they have been placed at par with the CBSE and the ICSE passouts, candidates said here on Tuesday at the end of fourth counseling.
In JAC and BSEB exams the percentage of marks remains much lower in comparison to exams taken by CBSE and ICSE.
Every State gives weightage to the pass outs of their State boards but here in this process no weightage has been given to these students. It is the pain of many candidates expressed by Anuradha Anant (applicant for science teacher) and Ganesh Mishra (applicant for Sanskrit teacher) while talking to The Pioneer.
The process of appointment of primary teachers and upper primary teachers for government schools is going on in entire state these days. The fourth round of counseling is going to conclude and yet more than 50 per cent vacancies have not been filed so far. The fifth and final round will start day after tomorrow and now it looks impossible that the government is going to get teachers against the vacancies it has published.
It doesn't mean that Jharkhand is free from the problem of unemployment or the unemployed youths of this state are not interested in teaching job. The number of applicants in every district clearly tells that the present scenario is due to errors in the appointment process and policy. That is why except the language subject vacancies in all other subjects JAC pass outs failed to get a place in the merit list even in fourth list counseling.
According to officials less turn out of selected candidates is due to the freedom of filing application in any district and most of the candidates availed this freedom. The vacancies are district wise and now those having high percentage are getting place in the list of more than one district and they are appearing in counseling in their choice district.
