Proposal shelved, officials cite strife in Kashmir as primary reason

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 30: The reports earlier were rife that the government is imitating the Delhi model of education in Jammu and Kashmir and will turn more than 100 government schools into model educational institutes by the end of this year. The claims have ironically fallen flat.
As per the reports coming to the fore, there has been not even a least action taken by the state dispensation to provide any modern and high tech facility to the government schools in Jammu and Kashmir. Thanks to the shirker bureaucracy, the proposal to ensure upliftment in the education system being imparted in Government schools, has been shelved for years. "The proposal ws earlier mooted that just like the Delhi government, the administration in Jammu and Kashmir too will have high tech facilities available at the government run schools. In the first place, it was decided that the government will adopt some 100 schools across the state where the pilot project will be implemented. But till date there is no forward movement in this project witnessed so far," says an official.
Pertinent to mention that the government schools of the Jammu region alone there are hundreds of schools which have no libraries, no laboratories and there are 19273 schools wherein toilet facility, Drinking water, government building or compound walling is missing. 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 schoolsare being denied the quality education, hence bellying the claims of advanced system of learning and teaching.
Furthermore, Jammu region has 762 schools without the library facility available for children. At a time when the government claims of ensuring betterment in sports infrastructure in schools, asking children to actively take part in extra- co curricular activities, there are more than five thousand schools in Jammu region of the state have no play grounds. 105 schools in the region are functioning without Headmasters or Principals. 1257 schools in Jammu have no subject teachers.
And finally, there are 683 schools in JK which have recorded less than 30 percent of the result. Again of out of these 683 schools, 476 which are around 70 percent in total, are in Jammu region of the state. "Several times such an issue has come to fore but there are unknown reasons why government is acting as a mute spectator or it is not acting at all," says a senior official in education department.
Besides the departmental survey, a study done by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) has also revealed that nearly 80 percent of the schools in the JK are without electricity connections. Little so far has been done to put lid over such crises and while the government was ought to take remedial measures sans any delay, it is raising concern over why the department isn't functioning in a digital mode.
In the study, ASSOCHAM has listed 10 states with poor electricity supply in schools. The Jammu and Kashmir ranks fourth. The states topping the list include Bihar, with just 8.1% of schools having electricity, and Jharkhand (12.0 %) and Assam (15.9%). There are as many as 6000 schools in the state without electricity. The survey has also revealed that 75 percent of schools have no computer labs.
