'According to the Right to Education ( RTE ) Act, primary school should provide students with basic infrastructure but students of Primary School in Kawajhar Rayyat in Madhya Pradesh had to sit outside during winters as there are no enough class rooms for students to sit in' reports our community correspondent Surjiya.
“There is no boundary wall or toilets for the students.” says one of the teachers, teaching in the Primary school.
There is only one room in which 57 students can’t fit in. In addition to the class room the school lacks other basic facilities as well like boundary wall and toilets. The school is built on the main road and many vehicles cross this road which creates distractions for students sitting outside and they cannot concentrate on what is being taught.
Call to Action
: To help the students get the basic facilities at their school, call on this number- 09425088207, to Mr. R.K.Palkpuri, Chief Officer, Dhindhori district and appeal him to take strong actions.
