As a student in the final year in a Leitrim post-primary school, I feel there is not being enough done for the class of 2020.

We are all coming to terms with the recent lockdown and people across all age brackets are adapting and diversifying how they go about their daily life. This rule, however, seems to exclude teachers.

I find it hard to fathom that students can be expected to sit "the hardest exam of their life" with the only help from teachers being a daily email requesting homework.
