Kreeri school without teachers
GIRL STUDENTS TAKE TO STREETS
Baramulla, Apr 24: Scores of girl students from Government Middle School Dardpora Kreeri on Wednesday staged a massive protest in Baramulla town against the non-availability of teachers.

Demanding transfer of Head Master Govt Middle school Dardpora, the students alleged that he was running a private school in the area and was not giving much attention to the school.
“The Head Master is running a private school in our area. His tendency is that students should switch over to his private school. Despite our repeated pleas to authorities, our grievances has seen no action so far with the result we don't have any option but to block the road,” said another girl student.
Accompanied by their parents, the agitating students claim that all the teachers appointed in the school did not attend school regularly.
“Despite drawing a handsome salary and often demanding enhancement in their monthly salaries, these teachers are not doing justice to their job. There is lack of accountability in education department,” said Ghulam Ahmad, a parent accompanying agitating students.
