The first drawback of the scheme was revealed when the teachers appointed in remote areas were found so weak in academics that they couldn’t even write their names properly. One can imagine condition of the children taught by such teachers!
In the absence of a screening Committee which should have been at par with CTET, DIET conducted the tests and political vote bank and nepotism played its part. Many a time, the teachers appointed under this scheme demanded that their salary should be increased and after they were assured by the authorities that their demands will be taken into consideration, they carried on with their jobs.
The scheme was well appreciated by all the communities of the state but the problems, which the scheme faces is that educated youth are made to stand up against people who have made the scheme as their illegal earning hand. At many places, poor candidates have been asked to pay bribes for their appointments. Failing to pay, their jobs are being provided to ineligible candidates.
In many villages, it was found that new schools and posts were created even though there was no need for the same. The Rehbar-e-Taleem scheme is still in progress as the recruitment process is going on in every district of the state. The scheme has lowered down the rate of unemployment to a large extent as thousands of teachers have been provided with jobs.
The government should interfere in the matter as early as possible as some candidates who are being deceived do not have the access to go to courts or police authorities to lodge complaints or file cases against the people who snatched their jobs on the basis of power, money and political influence.
Most of the villagers are still worried about the future of their children as most of the schools face the scarcity of teachers; at some schools, a single teacher has been provided for more than hundred students. The failing assurances of the government can be very clearly visualized in terms of lack of availability of teachers in various schools.
