SRINAGAR: Authorities have finally decided against closing one or a few educational institutions. Today, all the educational institutions across Kashmir will have a normal day of schooling and class work, officials said.
Civil administration would prevent classwork in some of the higher secondary schools or the colleges to ensure the student unrest does not take over the streets. In last three fortnights, a number of schools were closed or the students from diverse streams were taught in turns to prevent an assembly of students.
Now the officials seem to have convinced themselves that the academic spaces within and outside Srinagar would remain peaceful. Officials said all the institutions are open for class work.
These include the two higher secondary schools – the SP School and the MP School – in Srinagar. Tensions had erupted from SP School in Srinagar in wake of police and army raids on Pulwama college. The unrest in Srinagar was managed by improved policing and locking the classrooms.
Now when there were reports of some students protesting against continued suspension of the class work, the authorities have finally decided to permit academic normalcy.
