Pupils and educational experts are calling on the government to do more to ensure all students have access to laptops and digital face-to-face contact with teachers during lockdown.
Aaron Billingsley, 15, from Sutton Coldfield, said: “We are having to teach ourselves multiple subjects, around 10 altogether, without any face-to-face interaction or Zoom video calling.”
A study of teachers shows that under lockdown hundreds of thousands of children from disadvantaged families are experiencing less than an hour of home schooling a day, while wealthier children are more likely to study for several hours a day.
