80% parents report failure of digital schooling amid lockdown: survey

Sep 15, 2020 18:24 IST

A new Oxfam report has found that 80% of parents whose children are studying in government schools report that education was “not delivered” during the lockdown. The survey of five Indian states says that in Bihar the consensus on education failure was a complete 100%. The parents attributed the failure to lack of digital devices and access to digital mediums of learning as per the survey that interviewed 1,158 parents and 488 teachers across Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh. 59% of parents with children in private schools, too, reported non-delivery of online education as per the analysis.
