Every day is happening in the world of strange and curious things, but in India are becoming more common events that were amazing and very strange. India is one of the strangest schools in the world at this school is unusual its location it is located under a big bridge.
Photographer Altaf Qadri Associated Press found unusual school in New Delhi, India. There are teachers, students, two boards, stools and nothing else! Slumdog kids learn the basics of mathematics, learning to read and write in the street under the bridge, sitting on the bract. Creator of the school and one of two teachers Rajesh Kumar Sharma argues that children learn for free for more than three years. Since education in India is paid the poor children have a unique opportunity for education. Now the school is attended by about 30 students. SOURCE: weirdhut.com
Class In A Cave
In a remote Miao village in the Guizhou province of southwest China, children attend a class inside a huge cave. The Middle Cave elementary school, which has 194 students in five classes, was built inside the natural cave by Miao families who have lived there for more than half a century. Most students must walk for one to three hours on a stone path to get to the school every morning.
Learning in villages such as this is seen as an opportunity, not a requirement, for many children. Accross the world, UNESCO estimates that 61 million children will never receive an education, with the majority of these children being girls. (Photo: China Daily/Reuters) SOURCE: takepart.com
Testing in China
Students take their English examination in a massive exam hall at Dongguan University of Technology, in south China’s Guangdong province, on July 9, 2007. To prevent cheating and fraud, the 1,200 students take their test in the same hall.
Testing in China is a serious ordeal, especially when it comes time for the nine-hour college entrance exams. The New York Times reports that entry exams become “an obsession” for students and their families. In southwestern China, “Students studied in a hospital, hooked up to oxygen containers, in hopes of improving their concentration. Some girls take contraceptives so they will not get their periods during the exam. Some well-off parents dangle the promise of fabulous rewards for offspring whose scores get them into a top-ranked university: parties, 100,000 renminbi in cash, or about $14,600, or better.” (Photo: China Daily/Reuters)
