Bandipora: Over 100 students study in 2 room Govt school, seek attention

Bandipora: The government middle school in Kralpora village of Bandipora is painting a grim picture of the education sector in Kashmir, as the school has just two classrooms for more than students.

The parents whose wards are enrolled in the school said that the school lacks the basic infrastructure, proper accommodation, and playground.

“Only three rooms are available among which one has been designated for official work purposes at the school while two on two rooms area to accommodate more than 100 students from 1st to 8th standard,” they said.

The government has taken a building on rent but locals said the lack of infrastructure affects the smooth functioning of the school.

The locals claimed that they have informed the concerned authorities but nothing has happened on the ground so far.

“Our wards enrolled in the school are facing immense hardships,” Iftikar Hussain, one of the parents, said, adding that many parents have decided to enroll their wards in private schools.

Meanwhile, a senior district official assured immediate action to resolve the matter. (KNO)
