Srinagar: A meeting of students, parents, teachers and Coaching Centers Association of Kashmir (CCAK) was held here today in which “all the stakeholders appealed the LG administration to pass appropriate orders regarding the functioning of coaching centers at the earliest.”
According to a press note, the Coaching Centers Association lauded the UT administration for starting remedial classes in government schools for 9, 10, 11 and 12th classes. The president of CCAK Hamid Mufti appreciated the administration for putting in the much needed efforts and system in place to compensate the loss suffered by the student community because of the long term closure of educational institutions due to unending Covid-19 lockdowns.
Hamid said that CCAK is on the front foot in contributing for this cause by accommodating thousands of students from poor families for which the students have already submitted forms at DSEK for free admission for 2021-2022 session.
However, the CCAK expressed dismay and surprise over the repetition of a previous order that prohibited coaching for 9, 10, 11 and 12th classes. The secretary of the association Reyaz Majid said that these foundation classes are the actual and the most essential part of coaching courses for national level competitive examinations like NEET and JEE.
The association and the people appealed the LG Manoj Sinha , and his administration to pass appropriate orders in this regard on the same pattern as has been done in case of schools and government run remedial classes with clear cut Covid appropriate behavior guidelines so that the students of this part of the country do not lag behind in any way whatsoever in education in general and competitive examinations like NEET and JEE in particular.
