Odisha Turns To Radio for Classes

  • As online classes fail to reach most students due to poor mobile connectivity, the Odisha government has now turned to radio to reach out to children in remote areas of the State.
  • The School and Mass Education Department will launch classroom teaching through All India Radio.
  • Radio can be heard even in the remotest parts. 
  • Moreover, radio is cheap compared to expensive smart phones and the recurring cost is also low. 
  • As per the plan, students from Class I to VIII can learn their lessons through 15-minutes of teaching by experienced teachers through radio. 
  • Recently, the National Human Rights Commission issued notices to Education Ministry over the inability of students to follow online classes.
