Problems At The Rural School Level.

Schools in rural areas suffer a lot, and tend to have problems that they deal with every school year some of which include:

Lack of technological resources:

Many teachers and students struggle with lack of easy access to technology. Being far from urban and even suburban areas can make critical tech resources like high speed internet unavailable, adversely affecting academic opportunities for students and keeping teachers from attending online professional development events.

Lack of conducive learning environment:

When the Number of students are extremely large to fit into the poorly confined class spaces, this constitutes a big problem as most students struggle with comprehension due to lack of learning comfort.

Unavailability of teachers:

Since these schools are located in remote areas it is difficult to get volunteer teachers to relocate from the city and try to adapt to the village life. This leaves the ratio of students to teacher to be highly imbalanced.

Distance from school:

Since the school has to be at a Central place, it is most times located far off from the main residential areas of it’s students making it a long journey to get to school. This in turn dissuades students from attending as they rather stay at home than walk for hours to get to school.

Inadequate supply of student’s school essentials:

Most students can’t afford books, pens, materials for learning and hence can’t fully participate in classes, practicals or activities being carried out.

Insecurity:

Some of these schools see daily attacks from sects that are against education. Attacks such as school shooting, kidnapping and harassments are a few of the problems the teachers and students face.

Lack of funds:

Lack of proper funding gives rise to an incomplete school experience, as these kids won’t have access to libraries, science labs, or theater for effective learning.

These are a few menaces that plagues schools in rural areas. And it is a Civic duty to help solve most of them and create a system that speaks hope for these children. Do your part today support Lema plan International in her dream to make good education Accessible to all every child.
