Kochi: The Kerala High Court has sought the government’s immediate intervention to confirm no student is devoid of online classes. The court recommended that students should not miss the online classes due to lacking smartphones and computers.

Chief Secretary and General Education department secretary have been asked to inform their stance on the matter.

The court was considering a plea submitted by 7 children and their parents from various districts. In the plea, the petitioners pointed out that many children have no access to online classes as lacking smartphones and computers.

While considering the petition, the court directed the government to take immediate action for helping the students who have no access to smartphones and computers.

A special website should be launched to register the names of students who lack facilities for e-learning. Action should be taken for this by coordinating with IT Mission. With this, Schools and students will be able to upload the details. A transparent system should be established for seeking help from individuals, institutes and NRIs, recommended the court.

The court will consider the plea again this week itself.
