Abstract: It is true that he who opens the school door closes a prison. But in certain situations when school door has no way left to open then one faces no other chance than being in a prison. This study focuses on the impact of insurgency upon education sector in Kashmir. The insurgency and political hegemonic forces had drastically driven the education and interest of students time to time. As a result, the state is facing problems in making its generation educated and good-beings in the society it seems that the ongoing turmoil has violated the universal objective of education which depends particularly upon the peaceful environment as well as working facilities that are essential to be provided for getting knowledge out of education. The effects of stressful situations upon the mind of students have hindered their smooth education. The impact of recent years of insurgency has splited the school and student relations and has created rage among educated youth. So, it draws urgency to analyse the scenario. The steps taken for smooth education during unrest seem faulty when expected outcomes are seen from student’s perspective. This study is based on primary as well secondary sources- it includes research papers, newspaper sources, and journals and reports etc.
