There is a shortage of more than five lakh teachers in government elementary schools, said a study by the Centre for Budget & Governance Accountability (CBGA).

The crisis is more severe at the secondary level as teachers specialising in subjects become scarce. Teachers of Maths, Science and English are the fewest, says CBGA researcher Protiva Kundu.

More than 60% of the children in India depend on the public education system, so a teacher crisis has a deep impact on the future of the country. Is the government giving the problem the attention it deserves?
