Early Times Report

KUPWARA, May 19: Over the years, there has been no progress and development in Education sector here in Tangdhar area of this north Kashmir district.
According to sources, from past many years there is no officer in Zonal Education Office Tangdhar with the result the whole education zone is suffering badly.
From May 2013 the post of ZEO Tangdhar is lying vacant and no officer was sent to look after the problems faced by the teaching community in particular and local populace whose wards are studying in different school of this zone are facing tremendous problems in general, said sources.
Sources said that there are around 44 middle schools in this zone among which only 18 have head teachers while as rest of the 26 schools are without headmasters, adding that there are also some schools where there is a shortage of teachers and staff strength is very low.
One fails to understand, in what capacity the head teachers of middle schools have been engaged with high and higher secondary schools when there is no dearth of staff in these schools, sources told Early Times.
Sources wishing not to be named said, "Instead of focusing on primary education, these head teachers have been posted in high schools when their services were required in middle schools so that the staff and students would not suffer at large.
Another side of the story is that, there are number of teachers in middle schools who have been assigned the job of accountants cum cashier which is totally injustice with the teaching community and students as well, sources added.
However a parent, Javid Ahmad said that, "our voices are never heard, we are being ignored and there is lot of political interference due to which parties, unions, forums have rattled this education zone Tangdhar.
"Being a far flung area it seems that our place is nowhere on Google map, when the whole world is advanced in terms of development in education, employment and what not", said a parent Bashir Ahmad.
He believes that the situation has gone bad to worse compelling parents to migrate to Srinagar city for the education of their children because, authorities have always turned a blind eye and deaf ears to the problems and pleas being faced by them.
Meanwhile CEO Kupwara, Farooq Ahmad Dar told Early Times that, "Yes almost there is a shortage of 300 teachers in Kupwara district alone.
"We have brought up this serious matter into the notice of higher authorities, we have been assured that by first week of June, all the vacancies will be fulfilled on urgent basis, CEO added.
