Teachers, students walk miles to reach schools
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Sept 30: The school authorities have failed to provide transport facilities to students and teachers residing in downtown Srinagar and instead have been asked to join duties of their own during curfew.
Scores of teachers and students on Thursday had to walk miles to respective city schools as the school authorities asked them to reach the destination amidst curfew.
“I had to walk from Buchpora towards Lal Chowk to reach my school as there was transport available,” said a woman teacher.
Similarly male teachers from different pockets walked towards school to attend to students on time. However, most of them failed to reach on time and missed early hour for which an explanation was sought.
“What was our fault since it was the school authorities which refuse to send transport to a particular place from where we used to board the bus,” said number of teachers over phone narrating their experience on curfew day.
