On Wednesday, the villagers locked the school in protest. “ We had already raised the issue of poor education system in our school with the state government, but nothing happened,” the village head said.

Palwal’s district education officer, Suman Nain, said she had joined only a month ago and could not comment on the issue. “The villagers locked the school and agreed to unlock it only if the principal is changed. We have temporarily shifted him from the school. I have no power to transfer him,” Nain said. The government has ordered probe to find out why none of the students could pass, she said.

“We want to know the reason so that we can act accordingly to set the system right,” said Deepak Mangla, political advisor to Haryana chief minister.

The villagers alleged laxity on part of the teachers. “ The principal did not listen and the teachers did not do their job hence the shameful result,” Tanwar said.

The overall pass percentage in the board exam for Haryana was 51.15 per cent. In Palwal district, out of 19,491 students who appeared in the examination only 7,670 (39.35 per cent) were successful.
