RATIONALE OF THE CTET EXAM
The rationale for including the CTET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible to be appointed as a teacher is as follows:
1. It would bring national standards and the benchmark of teacher quality in the recruitment process;
2. It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance standards;
3. It would send a positive signal to all the stakeholders that the Government lays great emphasis on teaching quality.
