Education Deptt responsible for dismal performance of govt schools in Class 8th exams

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 23: The low performance of government schools in comparison to the private schools in the Class 8thexamination could be attributed to the policies of Education department, according to which the students of government schools have to appear twice in board exams but their counterparts in private institutions have to appear only once.
As per the recently announced result of Class 8th by District Institute for Education and Training (DIET), in the merit list of position holders out of total of 563 students, only five were from government schools while remaining 558 were from private schools of Jammu province.
The students of government schools had got marks from a total of 350 while the students of private schools had got marks from total of 200. Such discrepancy was due to the fact that the students of Government Schools have to appear for Terminal-1 of 150 marks as well as Terminal-II exams of 200 marks, conducted by DIET while the students of Private Schools have to appear only in Terminal-II exams of 200 marks.
"As per policy decision of the Education department, the private schools are mandated to conduct T-1 as internal assessment test and the marks of T-1 are not included in the final merit list of a student, while the T-1 as well as T-2 of Government school students is conducted by DIET and marks of both exams are included in the final merit list", an official of DIET said.
Some teachers who had worked in the private schools alleged that being aware of a loophole in the policy, about non-inclusion of T-1 marks in final merit list, most of the private school management didn't even teach the syllabus of T-1. "The conduct of T-1 by private schools is merely an-eyewash and they concentrate on the T-2 exams and teach students the syllabus of T-2 round the year", the teachers alleged, adding that due to such discriminatory policy of department, the Class-8th merit list found most of private school students and not government schools.
An official of DIET said that initially the Education department had decided that DIET would conduct Class-8th T1, T2 exams of Private as well as Government Schools but later private schools organizations called on Education department and got the order modified in their favour.
"Such discriminatory decision was taken during PDP-BJP government regime which is discouraging the government schools and Governor' administration should revoke such decision", the teachers of Government Schools said.
Joint Director Trainings/Principal State Institute of Education (SIE) Jammu, JK Sudan said that the decision was taken nearly two years back by the government. He further assured that he would take up the matter at proper platform in future.
