Govt schools drop students to improve results

Will Look Into The Matter: Director School Education



Baramulla, Dec 20: While the Department of Education is rejoicing the ‘satisfactory’ results of recently declared class 10th examination, reports said that several government schools barred many students from appearing in the examination to avoid bad results.
In Baramulla district, around 3446 students from 154 government schools appeared in the exam this year. Less than 10 students each appeared from 40 schools in the district.
According to the available information, only those students were allowed to appear in the exams who had the “potential to pass”, while others were dropped.
“The result of government high school Fatehgarh and government girls higher secondary school Singhpora Kalan is 100 percent. However, many students enrolled for class 10th were not allowed to sit in the exams fearing bad results,” said a government teacher, wishing not to be named.
According to sources, there are clear instructions to schools from the Education Department that their results should not be less than 33 percent. In order to save their skin, most of the school authorities allowed only those students to sit in the exams who apparently had chances to pass.
In district Srinagar, around 1113 students appeared from 73 government run schools which include 42 high schools and 31 higher secondary schools.
There are around 35 higher secondary and high schools in district Srinagar from which less than 10 students each appeared for the 10th class annual examination.
In almost all the schools the number of students appearing in the exam is less than the total number of students enrolled.
“The school authorities deliberately bar students to appear in the examination and instead encourage them to sit in the private bi-annual examination so that they are relieved of the accountability,” said Arif Hussain, a teacher.
When contacted, Director Education Muhammad Shafi Rather said, “We will look into the matter.”
