Covid and Teaching
by Mackini Henry
Unlike some who have access to data/internet services, not many are as fortunate. It took several weeks of trying to get through to the students with only the hope that the assignments will be done and submitted.
Parents have expressed loss of jobs which has led to financial constraints and so the commodity of the internet isn't one they have at this point.
It only shows how different we are on a social scale and as the "ideal" would be online teaching, the reality isn't so much that.
As for CXC, while other countries are preparing to re-open schools and get on with the examinations, our island Jamaica has been packing up on the number of cases. The harsh reality is that this is nowhere near possible for us.
Will this put our students at a disadvantage? Only time will tell.
