The State government is moving for a separate recruitment of teachers without engaging the Meghalaya Public Service Commission (MPSC).
Official sources said this will be done to fill around 1000 vacancies and the reason for not engaging the MPSC is because of its slow process of recruitment.
Till the time vacancies are filled up, MTET qualified teachers will be appointed temporarily for 59 days, official said.
During the last budget session of the assembly, Education Minister Rakkam A Sangma had informed that more than 1,200 temporary teachers will be appointed “immediately” to fill the huge number of vacancies in the education sector.
Sangma said that 1,219 vacancies exist among government teacher posts and 420 in SSA posts.
Meanwhile, process is on for identification of members who will constitute the Meghalaya Education Commission.
The commission is expected to look into matters relating to schools and colleges in the terms of their systems, institutional structures, salary and the management. It will also be tasked to produce concrete solutions and strategic recommendations for ushering in reforms in the education system from the perspective of NEP 2020.
Source said members would have academicians and experts for the field of education.
