Recruitment and Guideline for Sikshya Sahayak Teachers in Odisha 2020

Recruitment and Guideline for Sikshya Sahayak Teachers in Odisha 2020
 
You probably know that the Indian Constitution has ensured that the State should provide education to its citizens. Earlier education was a state subject but later in 1976 an amendment was made under Article-42, where education was kept as ‘concurrent list’. This means now both centers and states can now make different policies to improve the educational system in India.
 
The central government and all state governments are now trying very hard to improve the literacy rate in India. After that government made education a fundamental right under ‘Right to Education’ in 2002 by the 86th Amendment Act. It was enacted after 8 years in 2010. This act tells that, all the children between the ages group 6 to 14 years will be provided with free and compulsory education. 
 
Keeping this view every government is now trying hard to provide free and compulsory education to our children. Odisha is also making different policies and guidelines from time to time. The most important thing is that to make this successful, we need basic infrastructure and human resources like teachers. And as part of this, the Government of Odisha has provided some guidelines for new candidates who wanted to join as Sikshya Sahayak teachers.
