About 102 primary schools will be closed in the Kangra district from the next academic session and 25 schools will be merged with adjoining schools. Education Department told that this decision is taken keeping in view the decreasing strength of students in these schools. The teaching staff posted in these schools will also be shifted and adjusted in nearby schools.

Meanwhile, the Primary School Teachers’ Association opposed the decision to close these schools and demanded to review its decision. Sanjay Chaudhry, press secretary of the association, said the faulty policies and programmes of the state government were responsible for the decline in the strength of students in the schools.
