    • This article makes some very good points of the economic barriers that some kids have to face in India. In addition to this, you make a great point at the end of your summary of the paragraph that, due to the United States access to good internet, online school has been an easy transition for students here. I find this very insightful because it is absolutely true. Some of the problems that other places in the world are facing right now are non existent in the United States. I feel very lucky to live in a country where all the things that I need are readily available to me.

    • This article has valid points about the changes in India, plus you make good points in your essay. But, in my opinion between the second and third paragraph it feels a little rushed and that you are jumping from point to point instead of using a smooth transition.

    • Hey i really enjoy your article but i still would like to learn more about the economic outcomes do to the pandemic in India

    • This article has a lot of information and amazing points about what Indian students are facing from the pandemic. This whole article was very neat and I could see how much effort you put into this. The vocabulary choice and transition words were very smooth, however, I thought that paragraph two, three, and even four seemed a bit rushed. I really liked how you put points in the article about the percentages of students who have access to the internet and who don’t. In conclusion, I thought that this article was amazing and had so many interesting details.

    • This article makes some very valid and interesting points about how India and its population have been faced with economic challenges in light of covid. With a population of 1 billion-plus, that’s a lot of jobs lost and kids to be sent online. With poverty numbers rising globally this is a massive unknown problem, especially in the US, where the transition has been easier and more effective. You did a good job summarizing and writing this.
