Early Times Report

Anantnag, Nov 29: Amid much hyped enrolment drive by Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK), the students enrolled in government run schools across Kashmir are attending classes without textbooks.
This year the new academic session (2021-22) began on 2nd of this month, officials told Early Times.
At Middle School Badwan Aishmuqam several told Early Times that they don’t have a complete set of textbooks required for attending classes.
“I only have two books that are too old,” class 8th student told ET.
Sunaina Aijaz, studying in class 7th said that she doesn’t have 3 books, however praised her teachers for guiding and teaching her. Teachers at this school also admitted that several students were facing problems due to non-availability of books. “It isn’t in our hands,” they said.
Officials claimed that over 80% students in government run schools were attending classes without textbooks as the authorities failed to provide them. For years, the school education department has been providing free textbooks to students enrolled in government years; however, each year the authorities delay the distribution of books which badly affects students.
Sensing trouble, the authorities had directed teachers to collect old books from pass outs and distribute them among the students; however , teachers say that this directive wasn’t working at all.
“Students of lower classes don’t return books even if they return we don’t find them in good condition. Pass outs always demand new books and providing old books physiologically impacts their minds,” a Government teacher told ET.
He claimed that each year they submit enrollment details to authorities in the month of September and one fails to understand why they don’t begin to prepare books at the same time.
Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education Department, which is the nodal agency for preparing, publishing and distributing books in Government schools has published a schedule for the issuance of textbooks beginning from 27th of this month. The issuance of textbooks will start from Bandipora district, reads the schedule which JKBOSE had published in a few local dailies.
According to this schedule, students enrolled in Government Schools of Baramulla will get textbooks on 23rd of December 2021.
However, according to reports, Director School Education Kashmir Mr Tassaduq Hussain has objected to this schedule and asked JKBOSE to pace up book distribution.
Chairperson JKBOSE, Prof. Venna Pandita however told Early Times that the textbook distribution was going on for the last eight days. “Books are available and have been distributed for the last 8 days,” she texted.
