Supporting Underserved Students In Higher Education

A student was recently berated by his lecturer in front of the whole class for not having a computer. We look into the support that a B40 student needs going into higher education. Next, we discuss the kind of training lecturers would need to avoid this from happening again. Lastly, we talk about the government's laptop initiative for B40 students that was under Budget 2021.
