MCD Primary schools of Delhi will soon get special education teachers appointed by Delhi Subordinate Selection Board (DSSSB), according to the officials of SDMC (South Delhi Municipal Corporation).
The corporation had submitted a data to State Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities last year in the month of December. The data revealed that among more than 1,500 schools under them, there were 719 sanctioned posts in North Corporation and 365 in East Corporation, out of which 28 teachers were appointed on a regular basis and two on a contractual basis in the North Corporation and 33 on a regular basis in the East Corporation. This equals to only four percent and nine percent of the total posts.
According to the SDMC officials, a requisition of 1,540 special education teachers were sent from their education department to DSSSB for which exams were held to select the potential candidates in July.
Candidates need to qualify Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) to get appointed for the post of special educators. The results have not been announced yet. If the number of teachers appointed by DSSSB will be insufficient, there will be recruitment of teachers on contractual basis, said SDMC officials.
