Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has claimed that 60 thousand children have no access to online learning.
She made the claim as she delivered a scathing criticism of the Government’s shool reopening plan and education policy at the UNC”s Virtual Report on Monday night.
Mrs Persad-Bissesar lambasted Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley for stopping the laptop programme which was implmented by the UNC during its time in Government.
The programme saw each child given a laptop as they entered secondary school.
She criticised the Government’s recent opening of several primary schools as she pointed out that the children are unabel to occupy them anyway.
She questioned why that money wasnt instead spent on purchasing laptops for the children for the foreseeable future.
The Opposition Leader compared the Government’s handing of the reopening of schools to its handling of the SOE questioning whther they were both done “by vaps”.
Mrs Persad-Bissessar cautioned Dr Rowley tellign him “check yourself before you wreck yourself.”
