It is no secret anymore. We hardly have about 100 functional days in a calendar year for the school year. The valley has been witnessing the political happenings which entails( justifiably or unjustifiably) schools being shut down for most part of the summer and autumn, and now this Covid-19. We must add to that the winter vacation of another almost 90 days.
Amidst all the macabre theatre raging on in the valley the one thing that suffers the most is school education. Children are the future of our civilization. Children need to schooled properly, given proper moral values so that they become good law abiding citizens in future.
The establishment needs to work on ways to ensure that the education of school going children does not get affected no matter what the situation throws up on the political front.
How can we expect our children to perform better on the national front when the number of school days they get to attend is only half as compared to the rest of India. Every child is not blessed to have parents with strong academic background. Every child has dreams to become a law abiding successful citizen in future.
It is our foremost duty to ensure that every child gets the maximum possible functional days in the school. We can not afford to let the academics of our children be hijacked by the political situation around. Let us pledge to this cause.
