India is facing a massive shortfall of teachers in primary and secondary schools. Estimates range from 1.2 million to over 3 million. Young Indians today want to become software engineers, doctors, scientists, even film makers. Have you come across someone who wanted to be a teacher lately?
Meet Nirali Vasisht. a Teach For India Fellow. She isn’t just making her students learn to read and write. Working with children from schools with very limited resources, she is reshaping their future. She is pushing their boundaries, preparing them to think on their own.
