Schools with enrolment in between 3-10 shall ensure enrolment of 10 students to evade disciplinary action 


Srinagar, Apr 20 : Following the merger of government schools with an enrolment of less than three students, the School Education Department (SED) has asked its teacher to hold a door to door campaign to enhance the learner enrollment.

The department has asked the respective teachers of those schools having student enrolment in between 3-10 to ensure the enrolment of 10 students to evade the disciplinary action for performing poorly.

The official documents accessed by Rising Kashmir reveals that the Principal Secretary to government for School Education Department, B K Singh in a meeting has said, “In case of the primary schools with enrollment of 3-10, it was decided to direct the teachers of such schools to enhance the enrollment of students through door to door campaign under Mega Enrollment Drive (MED) since the very objective of creation of Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) Cadre was to ensure the universal access of students.”

Singh has also said that every teacher of such schools will have to ensure the enrollment of 10 students otherwise some disciplinary action may be taken against the non performing teachers.

Pertinently, Singh on March-29 has held a meeting regarding the merger of government primary schools with very poor enrollment.

Earlier, this week, School Education Department has said that it will merge 720 government-run-schools of Jammu and Kashmir having an inadequate student enrolment.

Speaking to Rising Kashmir, Principal Secretary for School Education Department, B K Singh said that a meeting was held in this regard and the department has decided to merge these schools at earliest.

“ In Jammu and Kashmir, we have decided to merge 720 government schools with low student enrolment,” he said.
Singh said, “In Jammu division merging will be done in 487 schools and in Kashmir region, 233 schools will be merged.(RisingKashmir)
