The students have to follow the online classes on the cell phones. Some parents are not ready to give cell phones to the girl students.
A parent K Girija said,"I cannot purchase three cell phones for my three children studying in the school. I have to provide three cell phones and take the internet connection. It will be an additional financial burden on the poor families. It is better to telecast lessons on the TV channels."
Municipal Teachers Federation State president S Rama Krishna said, "It is better to teach lessons to the students through Doordarshan or YouTube channels instead of online classes."
