Virtual learning will reach all students in two weeks: CMtext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Wednesday that online schooling would reach all students in the state within two weeks.
He was speaking against the backdrop of the suicide of the Dalit student committed allegedly after her missing out on online learning programme.
Though not a replacement of actual classes, virtual learning now underway will be re-telecast next week, making sure all students benefit, he said.
The CM said the Education Department is conducting a probe into the unfortunate incident.
Referring to a report by Malappuram DDE, he said the student was approached by her class teacher and was identified among total 25 students without television, internet and smartphones.
Meanwhile, Malappuram DDE stated in the report that neither the school authorities nor the education department could be held responsible for the student’s death, reports say.
Her class teacher had checked with her and informed her that arrangements would be made at school for e-learning by June 5.
However, the Kerala State Commission for Protection of Child Rights said ensuring equal access to education rests on the government.
