Junior college teachers on warpath, want engg entrance exam scrapped

Engineering Entrance , JEE Main

Over 500 teachers under the banner of Maharashtra State Federation of Junior College Teachers’ Organisation (MSFJCTO) will protest on Monday demanding an upgradation in their pay scale as per the central government’s rule, and among other demands include the scrapping of engineering entrance examination and the approval of 1,072 teachers’ post, which are pending.

They have also threatened to intensify their protests further if their demands are not met immediately.

“We have been requesting the state government and education department to look into the issues. However, each time we meet the authorities all that we get is assurance and the matter remains pending. We have no other option but to protest and get our demands met,” said Anil Deshmukh, the general secretary of Mumbai Junior College Teachers’ Union (MJCTU).

“We have now demanded that the state should consider the marks of HSC exams for the admission to engineering colleges. Numerous students delibeartely fail in class XI, so that they can appear for class XII privately, and can skip college, so that they can prepare for the Common Entrance Test (CET). The state has been conducting CET for the last 14 years, but every year not more that 10 per cent students appearing for CET score above 50 per cent,” Deshmukh said.

The teachers representing the junior teachers association have also taken up the cause of their counterparts teaching in un-aided junior colleges. One of their demands is also getting 100 per cent aided status for the permanently aided institutes.

“Unlike the teachers of unaided schools we are not boycotting the assessment duty, but we will support them and take up the matter with the state government,” one of the teachers said.
