Education is considered a fundamental human right.
The ideal pupil-teacher ratio for schools is 1:30 for primary and 1:35 for upper primary sections. In reality though, this number is skewed to 1:65 or even 1:70.1 Not only does this decrease a teacher’s capability to focus individually on students, it also significantly deters a student’s academic progression.
Recent studies have shown that in remote areas, children are failing to receive even basic education of quality, the deterrents being lack of connectivity, lack of infrastructure and shortage of teachers. Unlike their urban counterparts, they have access to neither decent schools nor state-of-the-art learning pedagogies.
Cisco’s rural connect solutions have helped solve these problems through the digitization of schools by deploying video and wireless technologies.
