VV-Correspondent Bharti reports from Kanku Bai National High School, Mahuda, Chhatrutanr village, Baghmara block, Dhanbad district, Jharkhand where 420 students share 2 teachers. 


Mala Kumari, a student explains, “We should be taught 8 hours a day in the school but we only get 2 hours a day.”


She tells our Correspondent Bharti Kumaithat sometimesthey only get 1 hour of teaching as the teachers have meetings to attend. 


The Principle Dinesh Das describes the difficulties, “But there are other subjects too like Hindi, Sanskrit, Urdu, Science, Chemistry and Biology.  So, classes of these subjects are not being taught.”


Students are having to do the work of the teachers.  They have to ring the school bell, conduct assemblies and invigilate during exams.  This is wrong.  It needs to stop.  You can help.
