text: There is a Lower Primary School in this village attended by sixty Chang boys and girls. It has the usual text-book problems; no books have yet been written in the Chang language and these children were using Ao books and had an Ao master. If the Nagas become responsible for education, text-books are perhaps the first great problem that they should tackle and they should quickly produce readers in all the Naga tongues.
