GHSS Behroti lacks basic infrastructure, students deprive of quality education
7/7/2020 12:36:09 AM


POONCH, July 6: Imagine the plight of Government Higher Secondary School, Behroti in Block Balakote of Sub Division Mendhar in district Poonch which is being run in an incomplete building, that too in a shabby condition, no laboratory or a library and last but not the least, tin sheets to cover the roofs of classrooms.
The school is running with such a poor infrastructure, which isn’t even sufficient for a middle school.
According to the locals, the school has only four classrooms and its roof is covered up with tin sheets, adding that the school building is still incomplete even after its establishment several years ago.
“More than two hundred students are enrolled in the school but to their misfortune the institution is running without Labs, Library and other basic facilities required to impart quality education,” the locals said.
They said that the “callous” attitude of the bureaucrats as well as the local leaders is taking a heavy toll on the education of students residing near the Line of Control (LoC).
“The disadvantaged groups of society for whom this institution was sanctioned are not able to get the desired benefits as the school is not equipped with the elementary facilities to call it a Higher Secondary level institution,” said locals.
A teacher, Ghulam Murtaza admitted that incomplete school building viz a viz lack of other infrastructure creates several problems not only for the students but also for the teachers, who feel handicap in imparting proper education to their pupils.
“Balakote in tehsil Mendhar is one of the most far flung blocks in J&K, close to the LoC. The school was sanctioned here keeping in view the topography of the area. It was established with a vision to extend maximum benefits to the students belonging to weaker and marginalized sections of the society, who live close to the LoC. Its aim was to give better educational avenues to such poor students. Unfortunately, the authorities have abandoned the building midway thus depriving the students a chance to get quality education,” Bashir Khan, a social activist from Mendhar, said.
Locals including parents and students urged the Deputy Commissioner, Poonch to take immediate action in this matter so that the Right to Education of this border belt does not get ruined.
Meanwhile, when contacted SDM Mendhar, Dr Sahil Jandyal said that he will check and get all the details regarding problems of the school from the Deputy Chief Education Officer (CEO), Mendhar.
