In 2012, the Government of Tamil Nadu announced that it was compulsory to pass the qualifying examination to be eligible to apply for the post of a government school teacher. Accordingly, the Tamil Nadu Teachers’ Selection Board conducted examinations of the first paper for the posts of intermediate teachers and the second paper for graduate teachers. Appointments to the teaching posts were made on the basis of the marks obtained by those who passed the qualifying examination.

Later, in July 2018, the state government issued a notification stating that intermediate and graduate teachers who have passed the qualifying examination will be selected for the post of government teacher through a competitive examination.

The Tamil Party condemned the ordinance stating it caused great confusion in the system of teacher selection and demanded its immediate withdrawal. It added that the previous AIADMK government did not notice it at all thereby making it a disadvantage to the faculty.

It is disappointing that the DMK government is following the same path as the AIADMK, the party said adding that it has not taken any action for over a year. The teaching staff has been struggling against the dilemma of having to write a double examination for a job.

“I further emphasize that we, the Tamil Party, give our full support to the struggle of those who have passed the Teacher Qualification Examination, emphasizing their most legitimate demands and will stand firm until the end to meet the demands of the struggle,” added Seeman.
