Education should be exempted from politicking: Tarigami

CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Tuesday said that education should be exempted from politicking as it can never serve any purpose to either side of the political divide except for aggravating the situation by making the future of youth bleak.

Education sector has already suffered immensely and it is imperative on all parties, groups and individuals to ensure that students don’t suffer further for no fault of theirs. Whatever atmosphere is existing, education should not suffer for the sake of future of our children.

Academicians, teachers, administrators and all other related people should take measures for reconciliation and devise a strategy so that educational institutions remain open.

Parents should also come forward and show an equal concern on normal functioning of schools like they have exhibited on closure of tuition centers. These centers offer an alternative to the students who really need academic tuition, but can never prove to be a viable substitute to formal schooling. Authorities should negotiate with the owners of these centers to address any gaps, misconceptions or misgivings.

Precious academic days have been already lost in the current academic session which in long run will result in our students remaining behind in competitive exams. We have a short academic session in Kashmir already which is further shrunk by public holidays, strike calls and curfews.

Education is one of the institutions that make up the social structure of any society. Can’t all of us think to find and devise some mechanism so that education doesn’t suffer due to the ongoing unrest? There are several examples in world, where despite wars, unrest and other problems leadership ensured that education doesn’t suffer. Uncertainty and unrest prevails in several areas in the world, but leadership in these areas ensure that education is least affected.

Due to frequent closure of schools and colleges, the discontinuity in the education process creeps in which results in irreversible loss to students.
