TARPOLY CREEK, AUSTRALIA – APRIL 05: Oliver Bowman, 8, does school work at his family home and cattle property on April 05, 2020 in Tarpoly Creek, Australia. Emily Bowman, mother of three, believes the current internet situation highlights “the great divide between city and country.” She is currently paying $400 per month for a recently expanded package and considering hiring a space in Tamworth (100 km away from her home) so she can access better internet to home school her children. ” We are in the technological dark ages in rural Australia, the service is expensive and unreliable”, stated Emily. As boarding schools have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many rural families are now teaching their children from home. With no access to high-speed fixed-line connections they rely solely on satellite internet which is proving problematic and costly, particularly for the use of streaming and video apps such as Zoom – a prominent component in most online teaching.

With remote learning being the norm during the pandemic, some schools are making sure their students still dress for success.
One student told Teen Vogue,”My school is enforcing the same dress code they have during the in-person school year, which the principal made us aware of over virtual orientation.”
The student continued saying, “I’m not sure how the enforcement of the dress code will look for online classes, but I’m assuming if someone notices you’re out of dress code, they will tell you to find a way to change clothes.”
Many schools are telling students that pajamas and blankets can’t be worn during online learning. Students must also not be in bed during school time.
