Sources from srinagar stated that donning uniforms after nearly seven months, thousands of students on monday turned up at their schools that re-opened across the kashmir Valley after remaining shut since august last due to the situation following the abrogation of article 370 and winter vacation.
Furthermore all security arrangements were put in place for the students to attend schools. Perhaps the students were happy to be back at the schools after remaining home all these months. A smiling Ziya Javed, student of Class 6 at a private school here, said “It is a good feeling to be back at the school, to attend my class, in fact, a new class, after so many months". Perhaps teachers expressed hope of a good year ahead so that students get uninterrupted education, saying the education of the children suffered last year due to the situation in the valley.
A teacher said “Without getting into politics, I want to say that children's education suffered last year. I want regular, uninterrupted education for students this year and hope there are no disruptions this year". Meanwhile the government had made several efforts last year to re-open schools in a phased manner following the Centre's decision to do away with Jammu and Kashmir's special provisions, its attempts failed to bear any fruit as parents kept their wards at home due to apprehensions about their safety.
