Dumka: Government school teachers here took an extraordinary initiative to teach students who were deprived of online classes due to no access to the internet. Without wasting time, they literally took classes to students homes as schools are closed for coronavirus pandemic since March.
The outer walls of children’s homes turned into blackboards. The students were made to follow all social distancing norms in the open-air classrooms.
“Education has been impacted due to COVID-19. Students here did not have smartphones. We started ‘Shiksha Aapke Dwaar’ (education at your doorstep) so that children don’t miss out on education. More than 100 blackboards have been created on walls to teach students at their houses,” a teacher told news agency ANI.
“Our schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we study in our village itself. Our teachers explain to us the concepts that we do not understand and clear our doubts,” Parvati, a Class VI student said.
Rajeshwar B, Dumka Deputy Commissioner, praised the effort and vowed to motivate other teachers to adopt the method.
