Covid fallout: Only 8% rural kids in online classes, big shift out of pvt schools
September 7, 2021
Over a quarter of those enrolled in private schools switched to government schools during the 17-month-long school lockdown either due to depressed family earnings or because online education did not work well for their children.
Of the 1,400 children surveyed, about one-fifth were studying in private schools when schools started closing in March last year.
Twenty per cent of urban students and 14% of rural students in government schools had received neither.
