Govt’s Appointment of Computer Teachers Valid?

The Government may have given appointment letters to around 450 computer teachers who have been working on contract basis for many years, but is the appointment valid?
Most of the computer teachers given the appointment letter by the government were working for aided schools with a majority of them teaching at minority schools managed by the Diocesan Education Board.
As per the rules in existence, the Education Department is only empowered to sanction and/or approve the appointment of staff at these aided schools and the appointment is solely the prerogative of the management of the school.
The government appears to have overstepped its boundaries by giving appointment letters to all the computer teachers without assessing whether it can accommodate them in the schools managed by it as it cannot force the minority schools to appoint a particular teacher.
Heads of parochial schools questioned the government’s logic in giving the appointment letters as it has put them in a piquant situation. If they accept the teachers appointed by the government, it would open the flood gates of government interference in the management of schools particularly appointment of staff, which they want to avoid.
