It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.

Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.

The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of  many children playing at the site instead of attending school.

When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.

Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.

Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.

There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.

Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.

Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.

One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.

Wo wir gerade beim Wiener Polizeichef waren: Es stellt ...

Wo wir gerade beim Wiener Polizeichef waren: Es stellt sich heraus, dass der früher Mitglied bei der "weit rechts stehenden Verbindung Frank Cherusker" war. Deren Selbstdarstellung beinhaltet u.a. eine Liste von Gründen, wieso man ihnen beitreten solle. Auf dieser Liste findet sich das hier:
Du bist der Stachel im Fleisch der linken Schmarotzer, die Du eh immer verachtet hast, weil sie auf Deine Kosten leben.
Und so passt mal wieder alles wie Arsch auf Eimer. Übrigens hatte der Herr Pürstl ursprünglich der Presse ins Gesicht gelogen, er könne sich nicht erinnern, wo er überall mal "reingeschnuppert" habe.

Aber wie das so ist mit habituellen Lügnern, hat auch dieses Geständnis noch einen deutlichen Eigengeruch:

Er habe aber "ganz sicher keine Mensuren geschlagen". Die besagte Verbindung gehört allerdings zu den sogenannten "pflichtschlagenden" Burschenschaften. Pürstl, seit Jahren tief in der SPÖ verankert, will "kein richtiges Mitglied" gewesen sein. "Er hat nie etwas unterschrieben", konkretisiert sein Sprecher, räumt aber gleich ein, "das ist wahrscheinlich Ansichtssache, wann man Mitglied ist."
Ja super! Wie konnte so jemand eigentlich überhaupt Polizeichef werden? Überprüfen die da nichts?

This comic uses some text from the Letter of Support for Quebec Students from Nordic Students. The letter is written by a coalition of student unions from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

UPDATE: The original version of this poster cited the above mentioned letter, and the Student Union in Finland was not included among the letter’s authors. That caused some confusion. The poster has been updated to include Finland, because it does have essentially the same higher education policy as its Nordic neighbors.

UPDATE #2: Since my posting this on DailyKos, this comic has been shared about a half-million times over two days. Here’s KOS founder Markos Moulitsas on the comic:


UPDATE #3: It’s been interesting to watch how many officials from the for-profit “schools” mentioned in this comic, and their law firms, have visited this site to view this comic.

UPDATE #4: This comic has now been shared over 2-million times across the Internet.
