One teacher for 233 students

Staff Reporter
Tura, April 09: Meghalaya seems to be lagging far behind other states with concerns to the education department due to lack of teachers in Lower Primary schools. The school in question is the Morasuti Government LP School with a total of 233 students and amazingly just one teacher acting as Principal as well as caretaker of the school.
The school is situated in Bhaitbari area under the Rajabala constituency which earlier had two teachers. However, the transfer of one teacher from the school two years ago has made classes difficult with one teacher taking care of everything.
