Srinagar: The government on Friday denied reports that it had decided to grant mass promotions from Class 1 to 9 in Valley schools.
“No decision has been taken yet on the issue,” Education Minister Naeem Akhtar told Kashmir Reader.
He said the government was consulting experts to decide whether to grant the mass promotions after schools remained closed for many months after floods hit the Valley in September last year.
Akhtar said they would also hold a meeting on Saturday to decide whether to extend the winter vacations.
“Extending vacations would depend on weather conditions,” he added.
