As we kick off "Pass Ya Fail", our campaign on Right to Education in India, this week we bring you compelling evidence on the lack of access to education in the country.
IndiaUnheard Community Correspondent Sini Budiuli reports about the school in her village which has only one teacher. This video is from Kolburudia village, Jharkhand.
Apart from singlehandedly taking care of 41 students, he also takes care of administrative tasks.
"Sometimes I have to shut the school because I am expected to go for teacher training workshops or other important work. It gets very difficult to manage", says the teacher.
The problem is that many parents are forced to send their children to a private school. This is not easy for them financially but the desire to establish a brighter future for their young ones is the most important thing for them.
You can make a call and make a difference.
Call to Action:
Please call Vaidnath Pradhan, Education Officer on 09430379364 and pressurize him to appoint more teachers at the Primary School in Kolburudia village.
