With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across the globe and no vaccine yet to subdue it, many are adapting to new norms. The new pandemic no doubt affected all spheres of life and as a result, alternative ways are being adopted to rise above the challenges.
The education sector is leveraging innovations in ICT to move ahead. Consequently, learning is done in some quarters using electronic mediums.
In Kaduna, the state government has urged private schools to conduct e-learning classes for students in primary and secondary schools with a condition that only 45 percent of school fees be paid.
The directive, which was contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Shehu Usman Muhammad, followed a meeting between the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools and the Association of Model Islamic schools.
Though, Daily Trust gathered that some schools in the state are yet to comply with the directive, parents whose children have begun e-classes say they are faced with new challenges ranging from expenses to supervising the internet usage of their wards.
