In rural areas, teachers wake up earlier. They walk farther. And they teach longer hours. Their students struggle more to succeed academically. In some instances, they deliver babies on their way to school! These teachers are the fabric of the community. They provide much needed social-economic support. Finally, the teachers provide spiritual and interpretation of natural occurences to their communities.
