PATNA: The result of the primary and upper primary teachers eligibility test (TET) would be published on May 14. Around 24 lakh aspirants for the post of primary teachers and upper primary teachers had appeared for the TET in the two rounds conducted in December, 2011, and February, 2012.
The TET for primary and upper primary teacher aspirants for appointment in government schools was conducted with an objective to improve teaching quality in primary and middle schools, said joint director, primary education, R S Singh. He said after one month of the publication of the TET results, one lakh to 1.25 lakh posts of primary and upper primary teachers are likely to be advertised.

At present, 3.24 lakh primary and upper primary teachers are working in 71,086 primary and middle schools for teaching 1.99 crore enrolled students. The present teacher-student ratio in primary and upper primary schools is 1:58. After appointment of another 1.25 lakh primary and upper primary teachers, the teacher-student ratio would improve to 1:40 which would be ideal for maintaining quality education as this ratio would make the teachers more attentive to the students, he said.
As the government's focus is also on monitoring transparency in mid-day meal programme in government primary and middle schools, increase in number of teachers would help in successful execution of this programme, said an education department official.
