The Higher and Technical Education Department (HTED) has decided to implement the policy of University of Pune (UoP) over the strength of teacher and principal in B Ed college.
The National Council for Teacher Eduction (NCTE) has made it mandatory for a B Ed college to have a full-time principal and one teacher for 14 students.
The UoP announced that the students of those colleges which have full-time principal and one teacher for 14 students in B Ed colleges will be allowed to appear for the examination from the current academic year.
The colleges will have to implement the orders of the university by October this year otherwise they will face music.
Taking a cue from the UoP, the Higher and Technical Education Department has decided to implement it across the State.
Currently, there are 49 B Ed colleges within the jurisdiction of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU).
Of them, only 14 colleges have full- time or part-time principals while rest of them (29 college) has no full-time principal, teachers and librarian for the last many years.
This means axe may fall on 29 colleges of Aurangabad, Beed, Jalna and Osmanabad districts soon.
