Private school association thanks minister for halting text book directive

Srinagar: Hailing the Education Minister Syed Altaf Bukhari for deciding to look into the issue of imposition of BOSE prescribed books on all private schools and giving a breather to private educational institutes to continue with their own books, Var said that the response of education minister has been positive so far and they hopeful their concerns would be taken care off.
“The order about the BOSE books was threatening to disrupt the entire academic year of Kashmir and put in jeopardy the future of more than six lakh students. We are thankful to Hon’ble Minister for not allowing such an order to disrupt the academic session of 2017 and allowing schools to continue with their curriculum as of now,” Var, said in a statement issued here on Saturday.
It said that they are always ready to work with government to plug any loopholes and address any complaints that may come to fore. “We have already approached government to form a high level committee of experts that also includes representatives of schools so that they can select standard books in tune with global demands for our students,” said Var, adding, “On our side we are already in talks with Japanese experts and are exploring other avenues to continuously upgrade the quality of our curriculum.”
The association has also directed the schools not to get distracted with the books order and continue with teaching their own books.

    These type of leaders are misleading the whole state. They are the actual perpetrators of private schools monopoly. They are responsible for dividing the children according to their financial status. 2ndly such type of divide spreads a sense of inferiority in govt school students as well as social insecurity and injustice.
    I have experienced all this during my entire govt school education.

    Media should support the good nd they should not be biased in these matters. Private schools don’t have extra ordinary books rather they are earning by selling books and uniforms at schools.

    Mr. Altaf sb. plz take care of the problem of exploitation going in private schools with the teachers.Who are paid with 100-200 rupees for atleast 7 -8 classes per day. Ur are able to fix the pay band for private school teachers. We are not demanding any policy or regularisation. But provide us atleast half of the pay of govt teachers. So that we can fulfill the demands of our family.
