RTE Act, 2009 requires the recruitment of very large number of teachers all over the country in a time bound manner. It is desirable to ensure quality in recruitment of teachers at any cost. It is therefore necessary to ensure that persons recruited as teachers possess the essential aptitude and ability to meet the challenges of teaching at the primary and upper primary level.
One of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in any of the schools referred to in clause (n) of section 2 of the RTE Act is that he/ she should pass the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which will be conducted by the appropriate Government in accordance with the Guidelines framed by the NCTE.
The motive for including the TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is as under:
a). It would bring national standards and yardstick of teacher quality in the employment process;
b). It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance standards
c). It would send a positive signal to all concerened that the Government lays special importance on teacher quality.
Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) is applicabe in which schools?
a). The CTET shall apply to schools of the Central Government (KVS, NVS, Tibetan Schools, etc) and schools under the administrative control of UT of Chandigarh and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
b). CTET may also apply to the unaided private schools, who may exercise the option of considering the CTET.
c). Schools owned and managed by the State Government/local bodies and aided schools shall consider the TET conducted by the State Government. However, a State Government can also consider the CTET if it decides not to conduct the State TET.

CBSE CCE - Students and Parents complain of excessive Projects, Assignments and Class Tests. This was done in feedback given by them. They said that several class tests are taken every week. This all has increased work load on students in place of reducing it as was expected.

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal today linked school education to the country's economic growth and advocated good pay packages for teachers to attract the "best brains".
Kapil Sibal, who has started a series of reforms in education, said the sector would witness investments to the tune of billions of dollars in the next two decades and become the fastest growing sector in the country.
He highlighted the need for a better salaries for teachers in states so that they do not quit the profession in search of greener pastures.
In the past teachers were not given much importance.
Saying that every state has its own policy, he said, "At the national level we only guide the state to help it make policy decisions. CBSE has a much better pay scale (compared to that offered by state governments)."
Unless states agree to provide adequate financial security to teachers, they would not get the best brains, he said.
Quoting a noted management guru, Sibal said at present 220 million students attend schools across the country. Presently 14 million go to university and this figure has to go up to 500 million, he said.
