The Ceylon Principals’ Association says switching to online learning once again under the volatile situation in the country will be a complete failure.
Speaking to media in Puttalam, Secretary of the Ceylon Principals’ Association Piyasiri Fernando said on the 10th of June discussions were held at the Ministry of Education with subject Minister Susil Premajayantha and teacher and principal trade unions where the proposition of switching to online learning was discussed.
He said online learning two years ago was manageable, adding that switching online at present would be an inhumane move.
Fernando noted that children, teachers, and principals are facing difficulties in attending school due to the fuel crisis, while the situation at homes are also dire, adding that parents are facing difficulties in providing all three meals for children due to the economic crisis.
Fernando said moving to online learning would make it more difficult for parents.
