A survey in July by the ‘Save the Children’ reported that 62% of Indian households have discontinued their education amid the coronavirus crisis. Some elite schools in urban areas and a few in rural predominantly private ones have made themselves able to teach via Google meet, Zoom, etc., but again here the digital divide is remarkably high.
A 2017-18 survey found that about 23% of Indian households have access to the internet and about 12% of the students have access to smartphones like androids and only 8% of households with study children have a digital device with internet connection.
