Thiruvanthapuram: 1596 primary schools in Kerala have no Head masters. Teachers with seniority take the role of Head master in these schools. There is a strong request to appoint Head masters from the current PSC list.
Head masters were not appointed in the academic year 2020-21. Those above 50 years of age need no test as per KER section; State government issued this order in March 2021. Candidates who cleared the test and eligible for the post of Head masters approached Tribunal. Tribunal stayed Government’s order until August 2021. Educational authorities are of the opinion that this is the reason why appointment is delayed. As this issue is in the order which is stayed, this can be revised by the Government if they wish.
But candidates are accusing that the State Government is keeping silent because to make appointment is an extra burden for them.
