Baramullah, April 20(KNB): On the one hand where Government claims to have strengthened the education system in the valley, but unfortunate scenario in Government Middle School Laridora in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district is running short of staff where only four teachers without Headmaster are appointed for nine classes, depicting grim picture of education system in Kashmir.
While, only four teachers including Head master are running another middle school of the same district at Mir Mohallah where students are leaving the school one after other because of lack of staff.
A group of students said “We are around 70 students in the school and authorities have provided us only four teachers to teach nine classes, how will the four teachers manage 70 students, our classmates are leaving the school, Authorities must look into the matter and provide us proper teaching facility.”
Locals while demanding proper staff for school said “The Government claim of better education but for us it is a hoax, as our children are suffering due to lack of staff many students have left school and migrated to private schools and if government fails to provide our children with teachers we will migrate our children to some other schools where they could get better education.”
While talking to Kashmir News Bureau on phone Chief Education Officer, Baramulla said, “I was not aware about this matter, I will personally visit these schools and assess the situation there.”(KNB)
