Srinagar govt schools top zero performance list
Srinagar, Dec 22: Recently declared matric examination results by the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education has yet again revealed a dismal performance of the government schools in Kashmir with 19 of them showing zero performance and the rest failing to match the success rate of their private counterparts.
The results were declared on December 19 which showed a pass percentage of 63.94. Around 44587 students had appeared in the examination and 28507 out of them were declared successful.
However, in every district of the Valley the results are a tell-tale of private schools outclassing the government ones. In Srinagar, several government schools have achieved zero per cent success in the examinations despite having minimal number of students enrolled.
In Government Boys High School Ahmada Kadal only four students had appeared in the examination but none came out successful. The others in the list are Government Girls High School Gassi Mohalla and Government Girls High School M K Sahib Safa Kadal, which had four and a single student enrolled respectively.
The performance of other government schools doesn’t look impressive either. For instance, in Government Boys High School Sangam Eidgah two students out of 37 have come out successful showing a pass percentage of mere 5.41.
Following Srinagar is Budgam district where at least four schools are with zero per cent success. All seven students of Government High School Cheki Sardar, nine of Government High School Najan, four of Government High School Riyarich and three of Government Higher Secondary School Hardu Ranzo have failed.
Government High School Pallar Budgam had 10 students enrolled but nine out of them are unsuccessful.
Topping the list of failures among districts, however, is Varmul with seven government schools showing zero per cent success. These include Government Boys High School Divar Singhpora, Government Boys High School Heewan Varmul, Government Girls High School Khandinyar Varmul, Government High School Khahmoh Rafiabad, Government High School Parampillan and Government Higher Secondary School Dangerpora.
While Ganderbal district has a single school with zero output, government schools in other districts aren’t far behind in poor performances. In Bandipora, the Government School with maximum number of students, 53, has a pass percentage of 5.66. Similarly, in Government Girls Higher Secondary School Bijbehara Islamabad only 23 students have passed out of 114.
Pertinently, the average pass percentage for private schools is around 70 per cent while there are only four schools where all students appearing in the examination have failed.
Secretary Education, G A Peer, attributes the poor performance to admission policies. “The cream of the students goes to private schools and it gives them better outputs,” he said. “Moreover we don’t go for the screening test before exams unlike private schools,” he added.
