Use Jasa's RM85.5mil allocation to buy tablet for students, says Teo


KUALA LUMPUR: The government should divert the RM85.5mil allocation for the Special Affairs Department (Jasa) towards the purchase of e-learning devices for students to enable them to access online classes, says former deputy education minister Teo Nie Ching.

The Kulai MP said the Education Ministry had revealed in a parliamentary written reply that based on its own study conducted between March 28 and April 2,36.9% of students did not have any devices to allow them to study online.
