Thiruvananthapuram: The Cabinet has decided to reinstate 68 junior English teachers who were initially recruited through the Kerala Public Service Commission to government higher secondary schools, but later lost their jobs due to lack of students to maintain the posts.

These teachers will be re-appointed by creating supernumerary posts starting from June 1, 2023, until May 31, 2025. However, no decision has been made regarding the adjustment of the loss of service for the months of April and May, which the teachers are demanding.

When the post of English junior teachers in government higher secondary schools was determined, it was found that only 87 posts had seven to 14 sessions per week. As per the recommendation of the director of general education, the government created 110 supernumerary posts for the academic year 2022-23, which was eliminated at the end of the academic year. Of this, 68 junior teachers lost their jobs on March 31, who will be accommodated as per the latest cabinet decision.

The HSSTA has demanded that the government take steps for retroactive re-appointment of teachers to avoid a service break. Meanwhile, KHSTU has accused the government of trying to steal the benefits by creating a service break for the teachers appointed through PSC.
