Amazing Teacher Student Ratio !

If you ever thought Indian education is growing faster.... think again. The District of North Dinajpur, where SWI is trying to bring in development by encouraging children to go to school, has hit a record ! Just imagine, the Sithgram Vidya Bhavan, a high School just 9 kms (6 miles) north of Raiganj town has 1,830 students enrolled in the school, and there are only seven teachers. That means, there are 262 students per teacher. A world record? (May be someone should suggest its name for the Guinness Book of World Records. And there are just 11 classrooms. Obviously, those students who do not find a place inside the classroom, spend their time outside the classrooms on the veranda. Amazing ! Believe it.
