The 'paper' schools of Madhya Pradesh

At Biliya Primary School in Shajapur, there is a long single room where two teachers teach students between Standard I and V. "We have lined up Standard III students in one row. We dedicate half-an-hour to them. Then we move on to Standard II students. We allot 30 exclusive minutes to each standard," said Amita Joshi, a teacher at the school.

With schools like these, what will the 'Right to Education' bill achieve?
