Parents prefer college-going kids, want the kids to stay at home unless absolutely necessary.

Parents of school-going kids (grade 10 and below), want them to be more social and visit the school where they meet people. This is for their own ‘work-commitments too.

  1. Classroom-based school training help in the social and behavioral development of the child.
  2. Double income parents have to either work from home or go to the office, thus they would prefer their children to be at school so that they can work with peace of mind. CUSTOMER ADOPTION IS DETERMINED BY CONVENIENCE, AND NOT JUST TECHNOLOGY
  3. College education has and will definitely experience a more permanent and irreversible shift to virtual formats.
  4. For school-going students- physical learning camps, extra tuition classes, and other non-core schooling programs will be disrupted by tech. Basically, places where parents had to drive kids or some extra coaching/ language classes that required a lot of commute time and travel costs.
