A decade later, 30 pct of the government schools still function with less than ten teachers

A marginal fall in percentage during 2020 to 30% is inconsequential considering it's almost the same as in 2008. Individual percentages of North, North Central and Western provinces were 42.6%, 38.5% and 20.2% consecutively. Meanwhile, 16% of the schools had 26-50 teachers in 2008, which shows has increased to 18% in 2020.
