Circular on aided school appointment put on hold

Circular on aided school appointment put on hold

Thiruvananthapuram: The State Cabinet, which met here on Wednesday, has decided to freeze the controversial circular on stringent norms for appointment of teaching and non-teaching staff in aided higher secondary schools.

The circular issued by the Directorate of Higher Education had snowballed into a crisis with various organisations coming out against it and in its support.

The circular laid down strict norms for appointment to teaching and non-teaching posts in aided higher secondary schools. It had stipulated that schools should fill only those posts notified by the regional deputy directors.

A three-member panel consisting of the manager or his/her nominee, the school principal, and a government nominee should interview the candidates. Each candidate should be ranked according to scores stipulated in the circular which also laid down that school managers should make appointments only from the rank list prepared on the basis of the candidates’ performance in the interview.

Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb had openly expressed his displeasure over the circular which, according to him, was issued by the Director without consulting the government.
