A teacher from north London, named as a top-10 finalist in a global teaching award, has warned of the poor living conditions of her pupils.
Andria Zafirakou says some pupils at her Brent secondary school have to do their homework in the bathroom, because their housing is so overcrowded.
The nominations were announced by technology billionaire Bill Gates.
Education is the “master switch” for progress in society and individual lives, said Mr Gates.
The Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist revealed the top 10 teachers in the Global Teacher Prize organised by the Varkey Foundation, with the winner to receive $1m (£720,000).
