Kangan students demand introduction of Commerce stream

KANGAN: Students from many higher secondary schools in Kangan say they are forced to choose Arts stream in the absence of Commerce stream at higher second­ary school level.
They have complained that the government has failed to fulfill its promise of introducing commerce stream in most of the Higher Secondary Schools in Kangan.
A delegation of students from Government Boys Higher Secondary School Kangan told Kashmir Reader that the school has been upgraded from to higher second­ary school 30 years back, but till date Commerce subject has not been intro­duced in it.
The other higher sec­ondary schools in Kangan area without commerce stream includes Gund, Ganiwan and Girls High­er Secondary Kangan.
“In spite of arranging commerce stream in our local schools, we are being forced to get admis­sion in other schools of the district which are miles away from Kangan,” Adnan Ahmad, a 11th class student at GHSS Kangan said.
The students added that last year the educa­tion minister himself an­nounced about introduc­tion of commerce stream in Kangan school and students had chosen the stream accordingly, but now the school adminis­tration is neither provid­ing admission for 11th class commerce nor are providing commerce staff for 12th class.
Mohd Khaliq Principal GHSS Kangan said that arranging commerce stream in the school was not in his powers.
When contacted, Soni Sanam CEO Ganderbal said,
“The issue has came in my notice and I will look in to the matter.”
