“The department used to put teachers under suspension and even annual increments were stopped for teachers who failed to produce good results in their subjects. But some schools still perform poorly in the exams,” the official said.

The J&K government had announced 30 percent relaxation in the syllabus for classes 10th to 12th in their annual regular 2021 examination.

The relaxation was given because of the COVID-19 pandemic and was applicable for the students in Kashmir and Jammu division besides the students in Ladakh as well.

Principal Secretary SED Bishwajit Kumar Singh said that the department would hold a screening of the high and higher secondary schools to ascertain the actual cause of the poor performance of the students.

“If we will find some incompetency within teachers, we will train them and make them perform better in teaching students,” he told Greater Kashmir. “In case problems are found with the students, then immediate interventions will be taken to guide the students properly.”

He said that the SED would also look into the deficiency of teaching staff in schools.
