The 700 students in a girls' high school in Bhim, Rajasthan, in Northern India, have only 3 teachers for the entire school. No Principal, no math teacher, no science teacher, and the list goes on. The girls travel 10 to 12 kilometers to get to school everyday, but learn nothing. The state of Rajasthan, like the other states in India, has a chronic shortage of teachers. The girls in this school decided to take matters into their own hands, and protest for their right to education.
