Bridging the Educational Gap: Addressing Digital Divide in Education
Sanskriti Srivastava, in this letter, highlights the positive changes witnessed in the education system over the past year, which have provided students with greater opportunities to learn from home and access diverse educational resources. However, a concerning issue arises as many students face difficulties in obtaining an education due to the lack of internet connectivity and affordable devices. This financial barrier has led to increased dropout rates, particularly in government-owned schools in rural areas with inadequate facilities. Sanskriti urges the recipient to consider this matter and take necessary actions to address the issue effectively.
