The Nengkhra Government LP School, which has over 200 students in attendance, has a section of the school without a roof with children getting a day off in case of rains despite the area falling within the constituency of the now Education minister, Deborah Marak. The Nengkhra SSA School is another story with children having to sit on the cold floor as the school does not have benches or even tables, forget a blackboard.
