Staff morale is at a very low ebb as teachers and pupils compete to see who plays truant more recklessly. There is hardly any effective monitoring of teachers. Classrooms are often ruggedly floored and covered with dusty dinginess. They are overcrowded too, with kids hardly able to write or even breathe properly. The school environment is awful: hardly any water for the kids, or toilets, or napkins.
