ARE YOU AN ASPIRING PRINCIPAL CANDIDATE OF PRIVATE SCHOOL ,NOW GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE A VETO TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
Private schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) are set to lose their autonomy in appointing their principals, as each aspirant will have to pass an eligibility test conducted by the CBSE and representatives of the CBSE and State government will have a veto in the selection committee to pick a principal.
Teachers aspiring to be principals will soon have to appear for a Principal Eligibility Test (PET), the CBSE has decided. Those who are already principals will also have to take the test. However, this amendment to the affiliation bye-laws does not apply to government schools.
“Consequent upon the recommendations of the Affiliation Committee and ratified by the Governing Body…, the Board has decided to conduct the Principal Eligibility Test for aspiring teachers to become principal and for existing principals, who fulfil the minimum qualifications of Principal..,” says the new amendment in the CBSE’s affiliation bye-laws. “The amendment shall not be applicable to principals of government schools.”
