Primary school in Kulgam has no building, runs in tin shed

"Teachers find difficult to teach, students suffer, locals aghast"
June 13

Painting a grim picture of education sector, the teachers of Government Primary School in Dardparin village in Khuli Batapora area of Kulgam district are being forced to take the classes under tin shed or in open due to inadequate accommodation.

The official apathy has put a question mark on the tall claims of administration of streamlining the education sector.
According to KNS correspondent, the teachers are also finding it difficult to teach the 50 students enrolled in the school, which was established in the year 2004. Thus simultaneously, has affected the education of student.

Official sources said that the tin shed is not only being used as classroom but for the Principal chamber and other things as well. “The 50 students enrolled in the school are being taught jointly in the tin shed,” they informed

They said that since its establishment in the year 2004, the authorities have failed to construct a concrete building for the students. “No initiative has been taken so far to construct a building for the well being of students,” they said.

Sources said that the two teachers here are finding it difficult to teach a good number of wards.
The locals in the area told KNS that they approached to the Chief Education Officer (CEO) Kulgam and Zonal Education officer DH Pora several times but unfortunately nothing has been done in this regard.

“There is enough land available for the construction of school but it seems they are reluctant to build raise a concert building for the students. Parents don’t allow their wards to attend classes during rains while in sunny days, the students find it difficult to stay inside the tin shed,” the locals said.
They demanded government to either merge the schools with any nearby school or to raise concrete building for the well being of the students.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kulgam, Talat Parvez told KNS that Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is taking care of the construction of the schools. “I will personally talk to the CEO Kulgam in this regard.” he said.
