The bravery and dedication of teachers in the strife-torn southern provinces serves as a great inspiration to society. Despite the near-daily insurgent attacks, teachers in Yala, Narathiwat, and Pattani perform their duties undaunted. 

About 20,000 teachers in the deep South go to school every morning without knowing whether they will be able to return home safely in the evening.
