The government might be making all sorts of policies, or boast of taking all necessary steps to improve the state of education in the country, but the ground reality appears to be something different altogether, at least in the Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh.

Upon reaching the school and interacting with the school principal, Ashok Shivhare, the team was told that the school has only 2 rooms in which 180 students are made to sit and study every day.
Two classes are organized in the gallery that lies in the backyard of the school. This helps to overcome the lack of space and save the children from sunlight.
The investigation team is yet to submit its report, only after which some action will be taken by the administration but the picture reveals much of the story and also the deplorable condition of government-run schools in the country, despite the government making all sorts of policies and allocating crores of rupees to education in the budget every year!
