Pulwama, Sep 26 (KNO): A government High School in Tral is facing a staff shortage, affecting students.
As per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), in Dodamarg Tral, locals said that the school was upgraded to high school in 2014 but continues to face staff shortage since then.
They said that there are just six teachers to teach over 150 students.

“We have even met the Secretary education department and other officials in this regard who assured us that more teachers will be posted there but nothing has been done as now,” they added.
