Under the Madrasa Modernisation Scheme of the UP government, the state government now plans to only allow Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) qualified teachers to teach at madrasas.
As part of this new scheme, 80% modern education and 20% deeni education will be provided.
The government will focus on subjects like Hindi, English, science, mathematics, and social science.
AMENDMENT IN TEACHER RECRUITMENT
The move also attempts to bring in transparency to the teacher appointment process. The teacher recruitment rules will be amended as well.
Only after qualifying TET can madrasa teachers be hired. Earlier, BEd qualified teachers were hired to teach at madrasas.
Also, madrasa students themselves were later hired as teachers and 80% of the education provided was deeni education while 20% was modern education. Now, all madrasa pass-outs will be monitored by the government.
NUMBER OF MADRASA TEACHERS FOR EACH LEVEL
Aaliya-level madrasas will have one teacher, in Class 5, four teachers will be, Classes 6 to 8 will have two teachers, and Classes 9 and 10 will have three teachers to teach modern education.
