A Schoolmaster’s Difficulties
(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)
Ibarra converses with a schoolmaster who was helped by his father. The schoolmaster narrates the obstacles that he encountered in teaching the children. He informs Ibarra that the town lacks facilities such as a school building and necessary equipment. His work is also hindered by the stubbornness of the former town Curate, Padre Damaso.
