Rajaram is not just a science and mathematics teacher for students of Baarali village in Udupi district’s Brahmavar taluk, but also the one person, who ensured that they did not drop out of school.
When the teacher sensed that the students in Baarali and surrounding villages began dropping out of the Baarali Government Higher Primary School over a year ago as the children had to trek through 3-km of forest area to reach the school, he bought a bus, turned driver and started ferrying them.
“There are no roads from the houses of the children to the school. There is a mud path through the forest and most of the girl students began dropping out as their families were scared of allowing their children to walk for a total of 6 km to and from school,” Rajaram was quoted as telling The NewsMinute on his noble effort.
