Ganderbal schools lack Commerce stream
Ganderbal, Apr 24: Most of the higher secondary schools in this newly created district don’t offer Commerce subjects forcing students to opt for other streams after 10th class.
Out of the total of 26 higher secondary institutions in the district only three offer commerce. The three are Boys Higher Secondary schools Ganderbal and Manigam and Boys Higher Secondary School Wakura. All six higher secondary schools in Kangan tehsil are without Commerce steam.
In the absence of Commerce stream, the female students suffer the most. However, Boys Higher Secondary School Ganderbal has allowed the girls to take admission. But most of the female students are reluctant to join co-education school.
“I was intending to opt for Commerce which was my favourite subject, but due to lack of stream in the schools, I was forced to switch over to non-medical,” said Zohra, a student at Girls HSS Ganderbal.
Like Zohra, there are hundreds of students who have been forced to take streams other than Commerce courtesy lack of the stream in the schools.
The Director School Education Kashmir, Shagufta Parveen, said it is not possible to teach all streams in every school.
