Civic Urdu school gives a shocker

AKOLA: Mayor Jyotsna Gawai, deputy mayor Raffique Siddique and standing committee chairman Vijay Agrawal were in for a shock when they paid a surprise visit to Akola Municipal Corporation's Urdu Primary School No. 13 a day ago. They found education standards under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan degrading at the school.
The Urdu school provides education up to Std VII. The strength of the school is only 85 students. There are only four rooms, one of them being used for the headmaster's office.

Shockingly, students of first, second and third standards are made to sit in one room. Students of fourth and fifth standard are taught together in another room while students of sixth and seventh standards are cramped in the third room.
Surprisingly, the Marathi primary school on the same premises has four vacant rooms. But the Urdu school's management has not bothered to utilize them for conducting classes.
Education officer of AMC Shahin Sultana said show-cause notices have been issued to teachers and a day's salary will be deducted if their reply is not satisfactory.
