23 ReT Teachers Terminated for Invalid Degree Certificates
School Education Department Terminates 23 ReT Teachers for Holding Invalid Degree Certificates
The School Education Department in Jammu has terminated the services of 23 Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teachers for holding invalid degree certificates acquired from unrecognised boards. The move came after a committee was constituted to review the pending regularization cases of RETs.
As per the official communique, the committee observed that 23 RETs of different districts of Jammu Division have acquired their qualifications from the boards which have not been granted equivalence by the J&K Board of School Education, Jammu. These boards have not been recognized by the Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE) in India.
The committee has recommended the immediate termination of services of these 23 RETs as they do not possess the requisite qualification certificates. The concerned Chief Education Officers have been directed to disengage their services immediately.
This action by the School Education Department sends a strong message that the government is committed to ensuring that only qualified and competent teachers are entrusted with the responsibility of educating our children. It is a step towards improving the quality of education and ensuring that students receive education of the highest standard.
