Initiative taken for students whose parents cannot afford digital devices, internet connections
The primary schools in Gujarat have remained shut for nearly one-and-a-half years now and all the academic activities have transferred to online mode. But, there are several students whose parents cannot afford digital devices and internet connection for these classes.
The Ahmedabad Municipal School Board has come up with an idea, where the teachers themselves go to the children who don’t have access to online classes and mobile phones. Teachers were asked to conduct classes in the park ensuring such students don’t miss out on their studies just because of their financial background.
The teachers make the students buy books and study materials according to their syllabus. Teachers also have the purpose of awakening the interest in studies for poor students who otherwise would have been left behind due to online classes.
Dinesh Desai, a teacher from this initiative, said, “It is being said that these students were no longer interested in studies but now when the teacher comes here, there are at least 40 to 50 students whom the teacher teaches.”
