Thiruvananthapuram: A group of candidates who seek jobs in temporary vacancies in Kerala state schools alleged that the instructions of the Director of Employment Exchange were ignored in the selection process.

The schools make appointments on their own by neglecting the employment exchange for local political leadership to ensure the appointment of their own people, they allege. Ahead of the academic year, temporary appointments are being made in government schools across the state.

The candidates alleged that the process for temporary appointment has been started for about 3,000 vacancies across 14 districts.

On March 30, the Director of Employment issued a circular asking all temporary/daily wage vacancies in schools to be reported to the District Employment Office. The employment exchange will provide a list of candidates according to criteria such as seniority, qualification, age relaxation, reservation and preference. Schools can make appointments from this list.

However, the appointments are made under the leadership of schools and PTAs after advertising in daily newspapers. Officials point out that the education minister himself has announced that schools can hire guest teachers locally.

Education department officials explained that there would be a delay in making the appointment through the employment exchange. School officials say that those who have been hired won't stay for the entire academic year unless qualified people are found and hired locally.
