Traversing Dilapidated Bridges To Get To School

School is in session, and face-to-face learning has resumed nationwide. However, some students are facing challenges in travelling to school, with a group needing to travel by boat, and another having to use a ricketty suspension bridge. First, we talk about the actual difficulties on the ground, and what we need to do to address it. Then, we get into how these sorts of infrastructure barriers affect students and our education system as a whole.
