Behind the RTO office in Madhya Pradeshʼs Chhatarpur district there is a muddy road where students sit by and study amid speeding vehicles and stray dogs.
This is a school set up by a government where children come to learn but the administration failed to provide them a building where students can sit, study and learn easily. However, they study under the open sky on muddy road amid the dangers of speeding vehicles and barking stray dogs.
The school was sanctioned in 2013 and is the only school in ward 5 which caters to the need of the children of the area.
According to the officials they are doing everything they can to bring the children under the roof but the situation of the school says otherwise.
“There are two teachers and 41 school children in this primary school. The school has no building of its own. So wherever we find place, we conduct our school at that place,” School principal Sukhlal Pathak said.
Phathak said that he and his predecessor have informed the officials about the state of the school.
“We got assurances but nothing has materialised yet. We fear for the lives of students here as vehicles pass at high speed on this road,” he said.
