Online classes and here is where we as parents are getting it wrong

Until the start of academic year 2020-21, we parents were blissfully unaware of the teaching methodology in school- yes most of us looked at the syllabus, home work, prepared our wards for competitions and various activities in school and asked them about what did they learn at school- but we weren’t physically present to see… Continue reading Online classes and here is where we as parents are getting it wrong
