“Educational equity means that each child receives what they need to develop to their full academic and social potential." - National Equity Project, USA.
Dr Anila Wasim* teaches academic skills to her first-year university students every week. Initially she was teaching this course in-person but due to rising cases, her classes have been shifted online. The transition has dramatically affected her classroom.
She notes that many of her high-performing students are now behaving differently. One of her most enthusiastic students now rarely participates, another keeps logging in and out during class hours, while a third student has stopped attending classes altogether.
