With the outbreak of the pandemic, until the government launched the online Shad Network, the Ministry of Education sought a solution to compensate the teaching hours so that education would not be shut down, and the first solution was to continue education through the State TV, which was broadcasted on two networks, the Fourth and the Education channels, which were most useful for elementary students.
