Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Joint Coordination Committee of Private Schools (JKJCCPS) on Saturday called on education minister Chowdhary Zulfikar Ali to apprise him about the current education scenario and the problems they are facing while running the schools smoothly.
A spokesperson of the committee, in a statement said the delegation, led by its president, discussed the issues confronting education system and the smooth functioning of the schools.
“JKCCPS informed the minster that the coordination committee ensures that its members provide quality education to the students while also providing state of art infrastructure and facilities,” he said.
He said the coordination committee envisages to impart professional training to the teachers for which it plans to sign Memorandum of Understanding with the top notch schools from other states also.
“President JKJCCS informed the minister that the teacher exchange programmes will be organised so that teachers from this place visit the top schools in India and see their teaching method which could be employed in our schools here,” the spokesperson said.
He said the committee would establish a common grievance cell where in parents can register their grievances against any school which will be addressed on priority basis and ensured that the compliant gets satisfactory response.
The committee urged the minister to take its members on board for any policy decisions vis-a-vis schools.
“JKJCCS also urged the minister that registration granted to the schools should be a permanent or at least for 10 years,” the spokesperson said.
He said the government should also ensure that local investors establish top notch higher secondary schools and also professional degree colleges so that students who for the lack of such colleges move to different part of the country and even abroad for professional degrees get such education in the state only.
The spokesperson said the minister assured the delegation that the education system will be improved further.
