Parents in the UK have been hiring private tutors for them at charges of 40 Euros per hour, in order to understand their children’s homework. It has been found in a survey conducted by London tutoring agency, Tutor House, on 2500 parents, that more than two-third of the parents fail to understand the school work of their children. Parents are also worried that they may be acting as an obstacle in their children’s progress by helping them.

Alex Dyer, the founder of Tutor House has believed that one of the main reasons for families to hire a tutor is the constantly changing curriculum at regular intervals which makes it difficult for parents to help their children in their homework satisfactorily. This has resulted in an increase in the demand for private tutors for school going students. In July 2018, an education charity, The Sutton Trust published a survey which showed 27 percent of the parents demand for a home or private tuition in England or Wales. And in London, this number has touched 41 percent which is mainly due to the high pressure for exam performance, need for 360 feedback, and the increasing competition for secondary schools. The parent tuition sessions would either be conducted online or face-to-face, and the subjects covered under this include Maths, English, Geography, and Science.

In the year 2015, tougher GCSEs were introduced in the UK because Britain lacked the desired level of achievement due to a decline in the GCSEs value. And about one-fifth of people who responded to the Tutor House survey admitted that they find it difficult to help their children with new terminology. Also, a lot of parents admitted that they failed to understand the new teaching methods. And the lack of communication of parents with other parents is also contributing to a growing demand for parent tutoring. Similar to the demand for a private SAT teacher in the UK, the popularity of parent tutoring has also been increasing on a large scale which has changed the dynamics of a home as well as private tutoring services.

Russian lawmakers have proposed to make it mandatory for internet users to verify their identity with phone numbers before gaining access to email. The State Duma has already made such a rule that put the same restrictions on the use of all instant messengers. The team of lawmakers led by senators Andrey Klishah and Alexander Bashkin, have also proposed to make it mandatory for email services to block messages containing any information that is banned in Russia. This action needs to take place within 24 hours from the time the state authorities notify of the issue.

The draft law’s explanatory note claims, “The adoption of this legislation will significantly reduce the number of false terrorist messages distributed through email services, create the legal conditions for bringing criminals to justice, and reduce the economic damage from such communications.”

The new email verification law will stop cyber crimes in the country and will provide hassle-free Internet service to Russians. Russia’s RuNet isolation law was also passed earlier this year. Senates Klisha and Bashkin were the co-authors of this law. The legislation is now allowing Russia’s federal authorities to command and take control over Russia’s Internet exchange points with the outside world. Russia can not create an infrastructure with the help of this theoretical law to make the country’s internet operate in isolation from the rest of the world. Russia government’s official censor, Roskomnadzor is authorized for running sustainable and safe internet services in the country.
