STOP ONLINE CLASSES During Covid-19 Pandemic - Maldives
We are putting forth this petition on behalf of students, with regards to the current pandemic situation in Maldives.
After several discussions with college and university students, it has been made clear to us that the majority of students are currently not in the right headspace to be taking part in new modules and back to back assignments provided by the colleges. We would like to note that we have a number of students who are currently working on the front lines during this pandemic in the Police and MNDF, as well as other organizations. These students are not able to find the time to sit in for online classes or complete assignments and have the fear of falling behind.
We would also like to highlight that a large number of our society do not come from well off families. These students do not have the means to access the internet or complete their assignments due to difficulties obtaining laptops or having to share one with other family members. This in turn makes sitting for online classes and completing assignments and exams rather difficult for some students.
We humbly urge the relevant government authorities to take this into consideration and provide a swift solution regarding the concerns of students.
