Afghanistan’s online education bid backfires

AT News

KABUL: The Ministry of Education is working on a plan to provide online education throughout internet websites, radio and television, as the educational centers have been temporarily suspended amid a threatened outbreak of contagion coronavirus.

The ministry is making the implementation at a time, while the majority of Afghan citizens deprived of electricity, internet and accessibility to media.

Residents of western Ghor told Radio Azadi that over 80 percent of the students would be deprived of education as the province is struggling with shortage of electricity and essential media sources.

Head of provincial education department Ahmad Sabir Noori has confirmed the issue, saying that they are planning to open the education centers in the open areas with a half numbers of students per classes. 

“Areas that are not quarantined would open class but the students would be decreased into a half numbers, otherwise we would record the lessons and send them to districts,” he added.

The challenges of lack of internet access, electricity and other accessibilities are even noticeable in capital, Kabul. Earlier, the UNISIF has expressed concerns over deprived of millions of children from education in Afghanistan and other South Asian countries.
