GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS PERFORM BETTER
The overall performance of government schools is quite better this year compared to the previous years. About 48 students from these institutions are figuring in the merit list. However, performance of few of them is very dismal.
“Our performance has been quite satisfactory this time” Director School Education Kashmir Muhammad Shafi Rather said.
He however, added that action would be taken against those schools whose performance has been dismal.
Pertinently, among the high-profile private school, the performance of Presentation Convent Higher Secondary School Rajbagh Srinagar seems to be very dismal as compared to Mallinson Girls Higher Secondary School.
