Almost 80 percent of parents find it difficult to help their children with distance learning according to a poll on the consequences of distance learning for households and parents of children in grades five through nine.

The poll was conducted by the non-parliamentary party Spolu between November 18 and 21 by the Focus polling agency, the SITA newswire reported.

The head of the party, Juraj Hipš, said the 517 parents that participated in the poll have an internet connection at home.
