Srinagar, Aug 19: The Minister for Education, Peerzada Muhammad Sayeed, on Thursday said that despite present turmoil 90 per cent schools have been functioning across the Valley.
“Students living in Srinagar city and some main towns of the Valley have suffered academic losses. However, 90 per cent schools are functioning in all villages,” Peerzada said.
The Minister said that 13 lakh students are presently studying in 13,000 schools out of which the syllabus of the students could not be completed in Srinagar city and the affected towns.
The Minister appreciated the teachers of Jammu and Ladakh divisions, and rural areas of the Valley for completing the syllabus and imparting education to students.
Peerzada said that the ongoing unrest in the Valley had compelled the Government to contemplate special classes for timely completion of the syllabus so that they could sit in annual examinations and perform satisfactorily.
The Minister said that history bears testimony to the fact that in no part of the world closure of educational institutions is encouraged. He said educating younger generation holds promise for bright future, progress and prosperity of any nation. “No sane person will ever think of depriving his own children from the fundamental right to education”, he said.
