Schools and teachers often adopt creative methods to teach their students and keep them engaged. Last year, teacher Arvind Tiwary in Jharkhand gave a rural school a makeover to attract children to take admission and motivate them to pursue studies seriously.

Three of the five rooms of the school were redesigned to look like railway compartments. Moreover, a gigantic “snake and ladder” game board was painted on the floor. Mr Tiwary’s efforts paid off with dropout rate in the upgraded Middle School returning to zero.
