A primary school teacher from the Solapur district of Maharashtra, Ranjitsinh
Disale, won the Global Teacher Prize 2020 worth $1 million on Thursday.

Disale (31) works at the Zilla Parishad Primary School at Paritewadi in Solapur.

The teacher's journey to the prestigious award has been an inspiring one. The
first school that Disale taught at was housed in a dilapidated building,
sandwiched between a cattle shed and a storeroom.

To add to the infrastructural woes, most of the girls attending the school were
from tribal communities that did not prioritise girls' education with the
practice of teenage marriage being common.

Hope other teachers learn from him how to teach
