Coaching centres have become money minting machines: Bukhari

Inaugurates Super-50 coaching classes

SRINAGAR: Private coaching centres have become money minting centres and there is need to do away with them, Minister for Education, Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari said Saturday.
Bukhari was speaking after inaugurating the divisional-level Chief Minister’s Super-50 coaching programme at Government Girls’ High School Hyderpora.
While commenting on the “menace” of private coaching centes, Bukhari appealed parents not to overburden their children by sending them to schools as well as coaching centres. “Parents should believe in us as we provide the quality education and have highly qualified teachers in our schools.”
He said mushrooming growth of private coaching centres is an insult to the school teachers. He said that there are few students who need extra care and may need some more coaching but overall there is no need for private coaching for the students.

Matric results by month end
Secretary School Education, Farooq Ahmad Shah Saturday announced that the result for the recently held Matric examinations will be declared by December end.

The CM’s super 50 tutorial programme has been organized by Directorate of School Education in collaboration with NGOs Chinar International and AVANTI.
Bukhari said that 1263 students have been selected for the coaching programme on the basis of merit and screening test and they will be taught in 13 coaching centres across Kashmir division.
The minister said all the arrangements including availability of experienced staff, heating and lighting systems have been put in place for the smooth conduct of the programme. He further said that the teachers of the coaching centres who will show the best result will be awarded.
