most impressive student attendance EVER

This morning we drove up to a school in Port Loko: we got there at 8:40, forty minutes after school starts.  School enrollment is 202 students with 7 teachers.  Present?  1 teacher, 1 student.  That’s 0.5% attendance.

[Several more students and teachers came when the lone attending student rang the special HEY-NGO-or-other-foreign-people-are-here bell in the schoolyard.]
