SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI

Srinagar, July 4: Taking serious note of public complaints that some leading private schools in the City were taking them for the ride, the Directorate of School Education Kashmir has directed the erring lot to adhere to the norms or face de-recognition.
Prompted by complaints like failure to provide drinking water to students, the Chief Education Officer (CEO), Nazir Ahmed Kanth vide a notification has directed the schools to redress the grievances.
“Parents of students reading in these institutions have alleged that the school management is not providing proper drinking water to the students and the students are asked to get water bottles for their use from their homes,” the CEO observed.
The DSEK has also taken a serious note of the issue that some schools keep washrooms closed. “Besides, it has come in to our notice that the private schools lock the toilets during the first half of the schooling hours and the students are strictly prohibited for use of such facility in early hours of schools,” the CEO added.
“In order to redress the grievance of the concerned and to watch the operation of Govt orders by private institutions, it is hereby impressed upon all the Heads of the private institutions falling in district Srinagar to provide safe drinking water to the students, besides allowing them  to use toilet facility during the entire school timing,” he added.
The department has also observed that some schools were violating norms with regard to closure on gazetted holidays. “All the heads of private institutions are directed to implement the instructions of the government in terms of observing of Govt holidays failing which action as warranted under the J&K Educational Act 2002 shall be initiated against the private institutions which include de-recognition of the registration,” the notification from the CEO added.
Pertinently amid public complaints, the District Magistrate Er Farooq Ahmed Shah had called a meeting with some of the leading private schools including Tyndale Biscoe, Mallinson, Presentation Convent and Iqbal Memorial Institute directing them to adhere to the norms or else strict would be initiated.
Since then, the administration has been active while the DM is understood to be keeping an eye on the activities of the private schools. A senior official said the DM would soon start surprise inspection of the educational institutions and those violating norms could face de-recognition.
