Question: Suppose that the integral program of study has been calculated to include 100 hours a month and one of the participants is absent from the study for a justified reason of being sick or his child being sick. What should be done with him, since he exited the learning process and can’t catch up?
Answer: Thanks to the learning process being conducted virtually through local communication media, TV, and radio, it will make it possible to repeat all the programs several times a day. Thus, there won’t be cases of seriously being behind.
Even if a person is ill or needs to stay home in order to take care of a child, etc., still there will be opportunities to advance together with the group, but maybe at a different pace. But in any case, he will be present at the lessons, which will prevent him from falling behind to a great extent.
It seems to me that we need to get people used to virtual studying, that they will receive more from the screen, and that it doesn’t matter that one of the participants doesn’t come to the group if he has a justified reason. In any case, he can receive the same information if he stays at home because of illness. And afterward he will be integrated naturally into the group and take a test. It won’t be a problem.
Besides that, it is forbidden to reject mutual assistance, since people are learning a special subject in which mutual help constitutes its principle, and actually one pulls the other.
