As Saudi Arabia prepares for the upcoming academic year amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Al-Hamad said the debate over whether children’s education or health should take top priority has not been solved at a global level.
“The family’s education and financial status, as well as the parents’ technical literacy, will have an impact on each student’s experience with remote education,” Al-Hamad said in a recent interview on Al Arabiya.
 “Moreover, not all parents have the freedom to devote their time to teach their children and follow up with them at home.”
She added: “I believe the educational experience should be flexible, and families should have the choice to send their children to school or not, while guaranteeing an equally efficient educational experience for both choices.”
