A teacher shortage is plaguing India’s education system

For the past two years, ed-tech startups in India have been tirelessly working to keep school kids up to date with their school curriculum. Over the decades, India has opened plenty of schools but hasn’t recruited enough teachers: The country has around 120,000 single-teacher schools, of which nearly nine in 10 are in rural areas, according to a 2021 Unesco report. The Unesco report shows India requiring a whopping 1.2 million more teachers to meet the shortfall.
