Pragathi High School, Sitafalmandi, is unique. In late 1970's, 14 teachers [all ladies!] working in different schools in the neighbourhood were frustrated with their respective managements, who were making them acknowledge higher salaries, while actually paying them much less. The brave ladies quit their jobs, came together and established Pragathi HS. They decided to donate 10% of their salaries to the School. Some of their non-teaching colleagues in their old schools joined them. Their hard work did not go unnoticed, students started trickling in, donations started trickling in, the School earned tremendous goodwill, which resulted in the construction of a 3-storeyed building and the introduction of all classes from LKG to X class. Today, its students are faring commendably well in Board exams: every year at least one student scores 100% in mathematics in the X class Board exam. Somuchso that a well-wisher has instituted prizes in memory of his father for students of all classes who top their class in English. Now there are also prizes for students who score full marks in X class Maths.
Some of the 14 bravehearts have now retired, but the remaining continue the tradition. Their only concern: the future of the students.
Hats off to PHS teachers!
