In another shocking reveal, not a single student from the Government Girls School in Hisar district, Haryana could clear the class 10 board examination. The Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) announced the results on May 21 on their official website; bseh.org.in. Reports have exposed the lack of teaching facilities in this government school in Kabrel village due to which all 24 girls have failed to qualify the class 10 examination. As per the officials of HBSE, this is the only school in the which has performed so badly in the state board examination 2018.
The examinations for class 10 were conducted by HBSE between March 8 and March 31 and the pass percentage stood at 51.15 percent, an improvement than previous year’s 50.49 percent. Where girls have outshined boys securing the pass percentage of 55.34 percent in the state, not a single girl from the Government Girls School could surpass the class 10 board exam results 2018. A resident of the village was quoted by PTI saying, “While on the one hand, the government is laying so much emphasis on the 'Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao' programme, on the other hand authorities have done nothing to solve the problem of shortage of staff in the school.”
Dharam Singh, the sarpanch of Kabrel village further informed that the school had no teachers for Sanskrit, Hindi, science and mathematics during the previous academic session. He further claimed that the girl students of the school complained a number of times about the lack of taff. Interestingly a teacher of the school said that there is no educator in the school and in fact the post of the headmaster is vacant for the past four years. According to media reports, the panchayat of the village visited the district administration several times demanding the sufficient number of teachers in the Government Girls School, but the authorities failed to meet the demands.
Out of all the girls who had failed in the class 10 exam, 15 of them have taken re-admission in the school. State Government remained quiet over the issue. This would be the second case in a row for the state to witness such disappointment. Last month after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the class 10 exam results 2018, all 51 students from Deeghot Senior School in Palwal were reportedly failed to clear the board exams. Distress with the outcome, the villagers went and locked the school demanding an enquiry. The Palwal District Education Department had directed the authorities and ordered strict actions to be taken against the teachers of the school.
