More than 80% of parents with children studying in government schools reported that education was “not delivered” during the lockdown, according to a new five-state survey conducted by the non-profit Oxfam India. In Bihar, 100% of the parents interviewed voiced this view.

This failure was mostly because families did not have digital devices and access to digital mediums of education, said the study released on September 4, 2020.
