Dismal State of Education in Sopore School

The state government may be making tall claims of streamlining the education system in Kashmir but the situation on ground is far from the worse. Lack of infrastructure at higher secondary school Bomia in Sopore town in north Kashmir is severely affecting education of children. The new building of the school which was scheduled to be completed at least four years before is still incomplete and this has put the career of students at risk and of course put a question mark on Govt claims.

Education contributes in nation building but it appears that the state government is yet to realize the immense importance of education. The alleged ignorance of authorities has badly affected the education of students at higher secondary school Bomia and put their career of students at stake. Besides lack of infrastructure, there are other problems haunting the students. Especially in rainy seasons, the students opt to stay back at their homes as ins such season, they are made to soak in rain water. Listen to the students of the institution. After years, the authorities finally decided to construct a new building to enhance the infrastructure facilities for the students. But the students least knew that the situation would go from bad to worse. Reason, the building which was to be completed some four years before is yet to be completed. The students continue to take classes in choked atmosphere due to the lack of space, a problem, which even the head of institution concedes.

The school is just 15 kilometers away from the Sopore town but seeing the situation of the school it appears that it is located in a remote town and is far from the eyes of authorities. It may be recalled here that students from as many as 30 adjoining area are enrolled in this institution. Listen to the Principal of the institution himself.

The school authorities also concede that the lack of facilities at the school have affected the education of students while posing many problems for the staff. Day and Night News also asked Chief Education Officer Baramulla about the long pending problem at the school.
