Indian Teacher Turns Streets Into Classrooms for Village Kids

2 monate vor


An Indian teacher is transforming a remote tribal village in eastern India by painting blackboards on walls and conducting classes for children on the streets, to help overcome the challenges of social distancing and the lack of internet and electronic gadgets. From teaching nursery rhymes to educating about diseases through a microscope, primary school teacher Deep Narayan Nayak, is helping these village students, who had to drop out due to lockdown, get a second shot at education. India ordered schools to close down in March last year to curb the spread of coronavirus. While many children in cities have been able to learn through online classes, some like the children in Paschim Bardhaman have gone months without opening schoolbooks. (Reuters)
