You’ll never complain about school again

These Timorese school kids walk up to 5 kilometres everyday to attend school, and they do it in all kinds of weather without complaint. They have one teacher who covers all grades of schooling and in most schools, all children regardless of their age or their grade they are in are in the same class.

Some schools will cram children three to five children to each desk. This school has no computers on their desks, no power to the building and no running water and the teacher uses a black board with chalk that he has brought himself.

I bet you will never complain about school ever again.
