Timetable for them."//

During the first
lockdown, schools mostly in urban areas switched from the four-walled
classrooms and adopted remote collaboration tools to facilitate learning.
Schools scheduled classes on zoom and Google classes among other
Most of these
appeared to be compulsory and parents had to part with tuition fees for their
children to attend the lessons. Some schools used these classes to assess the
performance of learners and issued reports to their parents.
