Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir government is contemplating reducing the vacation period in all state educational institutions to increase the yearly working days and enable the students complete their syllabus well in time.

"Government is contemplating reducing the vacation period in all state educational institutions to increase the yearly class working days," Minister for Education Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed said at a function here tonight.

Listing the reforms introduced to further perk up the education standards in the state, the Minister said that to meet the demands of the modern academic trends there was a need to have more class working days.

He said cutting the duration of the vacation would help in broadening the scope of curricular and co-curricular activities.

Sayeed said the state has set a goal for achieving hundred per cent literacy for which several reformative measures have been taken.

He said the education system is being revised and revitalised to make education available to every part of the state and enable the students to compete at national level.

The Minister said that during past some years the results in the government schools have greatly improved and the parents now prefer to send their wards to government-run schools. In this regard, he gave due credit to the dedication and devotion of teacher fraternity.
