Abstract:
Education is an important aspect for the development of a society. In Jammu and Kashmir about 80 percent of the population lives in rural areas, where the educational facilities are not sufficient. The condition of girl education particularly in rural areas among marginalised sections is worst. Mostly girls are drop outs they discontinue their education due to poverty, illiteracy, patriarchal nature of society etc. Jammu and Kashmir state faced a long period of militancy which affected each and every corner of the state particularly border districts, due to fear of sending girls out of their homes education of girls was affected most. Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas are operational in Jammu region targeting the girl education. The objective of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas is to ensure access and quality education to the girls of disadvantaged groups of society by setting up residential schools at upper primary level. The present paper is going to examine the Infrastructural arrangements of these residential schools in Poonch district. And also to suggest certain remedial measures for the better functioning of educational institutions which are targeting the education of disadvantaged girls in educationally backward blocks of Poonch district.
