A section J&K General Line Teachers on Saturday organised a rally in Srinagar in support of “Education reforms” initiated by government to get the school education on ‘track’.
Scores of teachers assembled at Municipal Park rallied to Director School Education’s office through Press colony.
A participating teacher, Anwar Hussain, told Kashmir life that it supports all the “positive” measures that government has taken to reform the education sector in the state. “J&K general Line teachers believe that it is against the dignity of teachers to come on streets. Teachers build nation by working on children inside schools.”
Hussain said that they are against anyone who attempts to “hijack” the teachers and claims to be a “stake holder to achieve their personal motives”. “Around 50,000 teachers are with us to support the reforms initiated by government,” he claimed.
“We are supporting measures and reforms started by the Directorate. We are not supporting or opposing any individual in this rally. But we are supporting the measures and reforms initiated in the last one year,” Wani told KNS.
