Students forced to study under open sky in Udhampur

Early Times Report

Udhampur, May 4: In an era of e-learning, students of a government-run primary school at Kothi Sair in district Udhampur are virtually forced to attend classes under open sky.
Untimely storm flew away the roof of the school on February 7, 2017, and since then more than 40 students are attending classes under the open sky. Earlier, there were more than 120 students, both male and female, enrolled in the school, but due to roof less school now the strength of student has sharply dropped to 40. It's all due to the apathy of the district administration Udhampur as well as Education department as they didn't take any initiative to renovate the school even after more than two years.
Mostly the girl students worst suffers in said school the strength of girl students is higher than Boys and creates inconvenience to the girl child to sit under the open sky to continue their studies. Local residents said that despite repeated pleas to the department concerned to renovate the school, nothing has been done so far. They said that in 2017, rains followed by strong wind blew away the roof top of the school and also caused other damage to the school. But after that no one came here to take stock of the loss caused. The students in the school don't receive proper education in the absence of adequate infrastructure. Dipakshi Devi, a student of the school, said: "We faced severe hardship to continue our studies. We don't have proper space. How can we concentrate on our studies if we don't have proper infrastructure." She added that studying under the open sky is bothersome especially during rainy days. Sunak Singh, a teacher of the school, said: "It has been two years since the roof top of the school building was blown away by strong winds. We face hardship while teaching students. In rainy season we are not able to teach. Now when the mercury has soared, it becomes equally difficult to hold classed under the open sky." Singh said they had submitted a detailed report about the damage to the school, "but till date we haven't get any response." He said that locals from the area many a time met with the Chief Education Officer Udhampur and apprised him of the miserable condition of the school, but to no avail.
