High-level team assesses infrastructure, attendance
KU inspects City B.Ed colleges
Srinagar, May 23: A high-level team of Kashmir University officials and academics Monday inspected three private B.Ed Colleges in Srinagar to assess the facilities and academic standards therein.
Official sources said the surprise inspection was conducted as part of the varsity’s policy to ensure maintenance of quality standards in the private B.Ed Colleges in Kashmir and ensure regular attendance of the students and teachers there.
The team members, the sources said, made certain observations regarding the colleges which shall be committed to them shortly.
The inspection team was led by the varsity’s Dean College Development Council, Prof Mushtaq A Kaw while its members included Prof Muhammad Aslam, Head, Department of English; Prof GM Bhat, Director DIQA; Dr Shahid Rasool, Director EMMRC; Prof Aijaz Banday from CCAS; Dr GM Mir from CCAS and Riyaz Rufai, Chief Librarian, Allama Iqbal Library.
A team member told Greater Kashmir that the students in these colleges desired that their examination should be held in October, in accordance with the academic calendar.
The inspection of the City colleges comes after the office of the DCDC conducted surprise inspections of many colleges in rural areas of the Valley, pointing out, among other things, thin attendance of the students and discrepancies in salaries of B.Ed college lecturers.
Pertinently, the office of the varsity Chancellor, Raj Bhawan, had also desired such inspections in the wake of complaints against some B.Ed colleges that they were flouting rules on admissions and academics.
