Coronavirus Updates: Online classes for Class 10 students to start at Chennai
The city corporation is set to begin online classes for Class 10 students of its schools. Deputy Commissioner (Education) Grace Lalrindiki Pachuau has required a gathering with all corporation school teachers to prepare them in utilizing portable applications for leading on the web classes. The gathering is scheduled for Tuesday.
The corporation has collaborated with a city-based NGO that has approached to recharge the mobile of Class 10 students or their parents with data plans, empowering them to attend the online classes.
This comes after The New Indian Express article ‘How do we study on empty stomach?’ published on April 22 which featured the absence of a level playing field for corporation and government school students who are set to show up for their Class 10 tests recently out of the pandemic. It portrayed the predicament of students in these schools in contrast with non-public school students who immediately progressed to online classes to reconsider for the exams.
“We drew out data on internet penetration among our students and found that online classes are doable. However, we are aware that it consumes high internet data for which the NGO has agreed to help us out,” told Pachuau. “With tuition based school understudies changing to online classes, we would prefer not to linger behind,” she included.
