Govt asks CID to find reasons behind poor performance of Govt schools

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is collecting details of the schools where the pass percentage of students was zero or below 50 percent in the recently announced results for 10 and 12 class examination.

The superintendents of police (CID) in all the 10 districts of Kashmir region have been entrusted to furnish a factual report with regard to the schools which have produced dismal results in the annual examination conducted by JK Board of School Education (BOSE).

The CID has also devised a format wherein the district SPs of CID have been asked to identify school, class besides the number of students who appeared and then qualified the BOSE exams for class 10 and 12.

The CID is also collecting the details of the students who have been declared as ‘reappear’ or ‘failed.’

Besides, the SPs have been asked to mention about the reasons of poor performance of the schools besides the role of teachers and students for the same reasons.

“Your report into the matter should reach to this office at the earliest for its onward submission to CID headquarters in Jammu. Matter is most urgent and needs your personal attention,” reads the letter shot by SP CID SB Kashmir to all district SPs of CID.

Interestingly, the initiative has been started by the school education department to get a first-hand account of the schools and reasons for their poor performance in the class 10th and 12th BOSE examinations.

Interestingly, around 37 government schools have produced below 10 percent results in the class 10th annual examination which include 19 schools with zero percent results.

The results for class 10th and 12th were declared on January 9 and 12 with a pass percentage of 62.94 percent and 61.44 percent respectively. 35 boys from government schools also figured in list of top 10 position holders in class 12th.

Minister for education Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari said the department has taken the initiative to ascertain the reasons for the poor performance of the schools in exams.

“The we are getting it done as we want to get the real picture of the area and know all the reasons responsible for poor performance of schools,” Altaf Bukhari said.

It may be recalled that the education minister in December last had stated that the department will do profiling of areas of the students and their parents to ascertain the reasons for the poor performance of the students in their exams.

“Besides role of teacher, we want to know other problems so that will get a solution to this problem,” the education minister said.
