    CBSE should introduce PET as it will definitely improve standard of public schools which will have learned prinls instead of prinls which are near and dear ones of management.Many eligible candidates cannot make it as culture of favourism is too high in public schools. If teachers have to clear CTET, then why prinls cannot clear PET. Most of them are not even up to the mark, without even essential qualifications.
