About 90 enthusiastic school students from a remote village in South India staged a protest on Friday, demanding that they need better education and committed teachers. The students of a panchayat union middle school at Mutnattur in Nammiyampattu panchayat in Jawadhu Hills have stopped showing up for classes because they said that Ravi S, their headmaster, is not committed to work and does not impart quality education that they rightfully deserve. The students demanded that the headmaster be transferred immediately.

The students also alleged that their headmaster never comes to class on time. He comes late and leaves early, they said.

According to statements from school children and committee members, Ravi spends merely five hours in the school campus; he comes at 11am and leaves by 3pm. The students have requested the education department to take action and transfer the headmaster.

The students also complained that their headmaster never answers their questions nor clarifies their doubts. “Whenever we approach him with queries, the headmaster scolds us," said a student who took part in the protest. Parents have stopped sending their kids to school as the whole endeavor seem pointless. There has been no word from the education department yet.
