SP school conducts exams outdoors in scorching heat
Srinagar, Aug 10: The students of SP Higher Secondary School and their parents are up in arms against the school administration for making the schoolboys appear in exam outdoors on Tuesday amid scorching summer heat.
Given the ongoing Ramazan, the students said most of them were on fast and it became difficult for them to stay outdoors in bright sunshine.
“We were literally dying of thirst by appearing in the exam outdoor,” the students said.
Despite repeated attempts the school principal couldn’t be contacted for comment.
But some staffers said there was no other option but to conduct exam for some of the students outdoors as the classes were already booked with other schoolchildren.
“Basically we have huge roll of students and it becomes impossible to arrange the exams indoors for all of them,” the staffers said.
Meanwhile the complainants have appealed the Director Education to look into the matter.
