Schools Closed, Again!

March 17, 2023 |


After more than two months, educational institutions have opened across Kashmir and the winter zones of Jammu region. With the changes that have been brought to the academic season by the introduction of the New Education Policy, it was time for the school students to appear in exams. Some schools have wrapped up the exams while board exams for Class 10 are still underway. The new education policy has been designed to improve the efficiency of classwork and brush up the skills of students while the curriculum has been designed in a way that our educational institutions don't end up becoming factories which produce unemployable graduates and post-graduates. However it is unfortunate that after the culmination of exams, most schools have again closed their classrooms and students have been told that the date for resumption of classwork will be communicated to them separately. A stupid justification given by the school administrators is that the teachers are busy checking the papers before they can start classwork. This is idiocy at its best and a crime at its worst. Schools are supposed to be places where students learn good values and socialise with each other. Besides the rigours of academic learning, a school is supposed to build the social and moral foundation of a student. Unfortunately, most of the private schools in Jammu and Kashmir have turned into a money minting business with little concern for the welfare of our future generations. If a probe is set up, it will come to fore how these school owners have turned into millionaires with the blood and sweat invested by parents in the future of their children for which these owners show no empathy. It is a matter of shame that some of the schools in Kashmir, including some prominent ones, have asked the students to stay at home instead of encouraging them to come to school and engaging them in co-curricular activities, if the academic work can’t be started. It is heartbreaking to see classrooms shut and schools wearing deserted looks when they should have been bustling with activity of cheerful kids. That this is happening despite the explicit direction of Jammu and Kashmir administration's school education department that the academic work will resume soon after the conclusion of exams makes it all the more appalling. It is time that the government identifies these money minters and strict action is taken against them for wasting precious time of our budding generation.
