Such figures while unmasking the tall claims of the state authorities over ensuring betterment in state's education sector have once again proved how Jammu schools are being neglected and forgotten. Children in these schools are being denied the quality education, hence bellying the claims of advanced system of learning and teaching.
Details reveal that in total, Jammu and Kashmir has 232 such schools wherein toilet facility for children isn't available and out of these 232 schools. 228 are located in Jammu region while as Kashmir has mere 4 such schools.
Further, there are 2817 schools in the entire state wherein there is no drinking facility available for children. Out of these 2817 schools, 2509 are located in Jammu region while as Kashmir valley has just 308 such schools.

rcent in total.
