While many of the private schools have resorted to alternative learning methods to pursue the teaching learning amid the health crisis, not all community schools fare well in this aspect.

Issuing a press statement here, the Federation said that the parents of the students in community schools were concerned about their children’s studies in lack of clear plan and alternative learning method.
