DSEK Takes Firm Stand Against Unauthorized School Fees

The Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK), Tassaduq Hussain Mir, issued a stern warning to private schools regarding the imposition of prohibited capitation charges on students.

Mir emphasized that schools found charging admission or miscellaneous fees would face strict actions, as per a circular previously issued by the department. The DSEK underscored the department’s vigilance in monitoring the situation closely, ensuring compliance with regulations to safeguard students’ interests.

Addressing the recent incident of distributing incorrect question papers to 12th standard students during annual exams, Mir asserted that the government had promptly formed a committee to investigate the matter. He emphasized a zero-tolerance approach towards those responsible for the error, whether intentional or unintentional. Mir affirmed that the committee would commence its probe immediately, aiming to deliver a comprehensive and factual report to the government without leniency.

The incident, which occurred on Wednesday, saw 12th standard students receiving question papers meant for 11th standard exams, prompting the board to cancel the examination. The mishap stirred concerns among students and stakeholders, highlighting the importance of stringent oversight and accountability measures within the education system. The cancellation of the exam underscored the need for swift and thorough investigations to identify the root cause and prevent similar occurrences in the future.

As the probe into the distribution of incorrect question papers commences, the DSEK reassured stakeholders that those found culpable would face consequences, regardless of intent.

The incident underscores the critical role of ensuring the integrity and reliability of examination processes, maintaining the trust and confidence of students and the wider community. The department’s commitment to transparency and accountability in addressing such incidents reflects its dedication to upholding educational standards and protecting students’ academic interests.
