Amidst the debate for allowing Rehbar-e Taleem (ReT) Teachers and Regularized ReTs for examination duty, the government has allowed posting of these categories of teachers in conduct of tests by Board of School Education.
In the past, the posting of ReTs and RReTs in exam centres was not allowed on basis of their 'inexperience'.
Director School Education Kashmir (DSEK) Dr Shah Faesal told Greater Kashmir that there was no harm in posting of ReT teachers for exam duties. "I don't think there can be any issue in it. When I can pay ReT for teaching in classrooms why can't I depute him for exam duties," Faesal said.
He said that ReTs were allowed to teach in classrooms which was a 'highly sensitive job' than being deputed in exam duties. "There is no harm in posting of ReTs and RReTs for exam duty."
The class 10 annual regular examinations will commence from November 10 where around 55000 students are likely to appear as regular students in 570 examination centres established by BOSE.
The deputation of ReTs and RReTs in exam duties got attention after their engagement was challenged by some Superintendents and Inspectors of examinations, saying that their posting was not allowed.
"I was designated as deputy superintendent by BOSE for 10th class exam but my appointment was challenged by the concerned Superintendent saying that RReTs can't be deputed for exam duties," said one of the RReTs from district Kupwara. "We were told that our orders will be cancelled."
Chairman BOSE, Zahoor Ahmad Chatt, said Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent is designated by BOSE while as the rest of the invigilator staff was designated by the concerned head of the school which is chosen as exam centre for the students.
