Amongst myriads of reasons, the students have been discouraged through various factors including inaccessibility to quality educational institutes, high fees and low numbers of funding and scholarship options.
Today, according to the statistics, there are more than 40 million functionally illiterate adults in the US who cannot fill out a job application, follow written instructions, or read to their children. As a consequence, the number of children raised by the illiterate parents leads to a generation of illiterate children and the cycle moves on and on.
The participants highlighted the fact whereby the number of online educational institutes should be increased which would consequently allow more people access to quality online education that is accessible to everyone and the expenses of which can be bolstered through little stream of funding.
