Covid-19 and its Impactful Effects on Education

With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping schools shut across the country, the beginning of the new academic year has gone for a toss. Even when educational institutions eventually open for regular classes, it might be an uphill task for students, teachers and parents to ensure that safety protocols are adhered to. Teachers point out that, notwithstanding the practical encumbrances of enforcing precautionary measures among older students, utmost vigil has to be observed in the case of students in primary sections. Some of the precautionary measures mooted include thorough disinfection of classrooms and campus before reopening, temperature checks of students before entering school every day, regulating working days and hours as much as possible and dividing classes into manageable groups to ensure social distancing, assigning varied break timings to avoid crowding and so on.

 

Online classes affect the eyes of the students due to long hours in front of the blue screen. Children must not have this type of class because they have low concentration power, and they do not have the ability to sit for a longer time in front of the blue screen. Lots of poor students do not have access to laptops and computers; all these students are naïve, think there should not be this disparate education. Surely there are lots of disadvantageous factors like there are no exams; students are being given marks by the internals. This may impact their career in the feature. These factors are going to be a foreshadow to the child further life. On this note, want to say that students are missing the days in the schools and colleges. Hoping the government take good decisions on education with clear instructions as early as possible to avoid the situations that occurred by Covid-19 pandemic.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced uncertainty into major aspects of national and global society, including for schools. For example, there is uncertainty about how school closures last spring impacted student achievement, as well as how the rapid conversion of most instruction to an online platform this academic year will continue to affect achievement. Without data on how the virus impacts student learning, making informed decisions about whether and when to return to in-person instruction remains difficult. Even now, education leaders must grapple with seemingly impossible choices that balance health risks associated with in-person learning against the educational needs of children, which may be better served when kids are in their physical schools.

Amidst all this uncertainty, there is growing consensus that school closures in spring 2020 likely had negative effects on student learning.
