'Pupils from poor schools don't get support from teachers while studying on their own during lockdown'

A study by JET Education Services, led by Dr Nick Taylor has detailed how learners from affluent schools continued to receive core education during the lockdown while their poor counterparts faced the risk of being left behind.

JET interviewed 16 parents and spoke to 19 by telephone for its study looking into home educational experiences of families during the lockdown. Led by Dr Nick Taylor, 11 researchers started their survey on March 31, four days into the country’s lockdown. Of the 16 interviewed families, seven sent their children to ordinary public schools, three to former Model C schools and six had their children in independent schools (two of these being low-cost).
