 Decision of changing textbooks taken without proper home work: Basharat Bukhari

Cautions government against playing with future of new gen students

Srinagar, Apr 16 (KNO): Pained to see parents struggling in getting text books for their wards, former Law minister Syed Basharat Bukhari has wondered how the government could announce a change of textbooks without the availability of the same in the market.

In a strongly worded statement, the former minister expressed his anger over - what he called- "flawed decisions and policy paralysis" in the Education sector and said, people at the helm of affairs seem to have lost their way and wit which has the potential of affecting the future of the new generation Students.

According to a statement issued to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), he said , almost half of the session has already passed off, and students are yet to get new books due to non availability of the same in the market.

He questioned how the government could suddenly change the text books for private schools when they had no plan in place for keeping the text books available in the market.

"I fail to understand how you can take such a huge decision without actually having done your homework properly. You seem to be least bothered about the future of our children." quipped Bukhari, adding that there was a huge policy of inertia in the administration and nobody seemed willing to shoulder the responsibility.

The former minister also castigated the government for leaving students in lurch by changing the academic session and said that by doing so, the government has ended up wasting almost more than half of the academic session in vacations, exams results, and new classification.

"You send them to more than three months of winter vacations from 25th of Nov. Then spend two months (March -April) in exams. Then another one month (May) for result declaration. Though they can go to school provisionally till results are declared, but the uncertainty remains. After an extended sort of Holidays, the class work finally begins by mid June. July or August you have again 15 more days of summer vacation. So please tell me how many days you provide them for new classes." asked Bukhari.

Calling it a mockery of the system, the former Law minister cautioned the government to understand the seriousness of the matter before it was too late—(KNO)
