facebook news feed dating Bussum COVID-19 has caused gigantic negative effects of populace wellbeing, society, education and the economy worldwide. As of 1 st June 2020, globally, 1.2 billion learners (68% of the world’s total learners) were affected due to the education institute closure in 144 countries, according to UNESCO data. The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown measures in Bangladesh have led to the closure of most of the educational institutions including Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) centres. Some educational institutions have introduced online learning but both teachers and students are having a hard time adapting to it. The worst sufferers are students who do not have access to internet and internet-enabled devices such as computers and smart phones and who do not have proper study space at home. Ghashful Paran Rahman School is also not too far from crisis during the pandemic. Due to COVID-19 the school had to close their doors and because of this closure the school have been facing financial crisis. It is not possible to collect school fees due to non-attendance of students at school, but school rent and teacher’s salary and other expenses have to be paid. As a result, teachers and office attendants’ salaries have been reduced by 20% and School Principal’s salary is reduced by 30% instead of receiving yearly increment of 20%, which affected their socioeconomic life. As school salaries are the only source of income for these people, all these low-income professionals are in trouble. But the students are suffering the most due to this school closure. School is not only a place for education but also helps your child learn skills to relate to different personality types. As he works through arguments on the playground or resolves disagreements at his lunch table, his negotiation skills, problem-solving abilities and self-control develop. Ideally, school helps your child develop empathy and compassion for others. If he participates in his school’s extracurricular activities, he will further develop friendships and social skills beneficial throughout life. School prepares him to handle a diverse workplace, especially when he is surrounded with children from different socioeconomic backgrounds or cultures. Only way to mitigate this is to introduce online home schooling. While this homeschooling produced some inspirational moment, some fun moments, some angry and frustrated moments, it seems very unlikely that it will replace the learning lost from school. Bigger problem is the substantial disparities among the families in the extent to which they can help their children to learn. The difference includes the amount of time available to devote to teaching. The non-cognitive skills of the parents, resources (not everyone has the kit to access the best online materials also the amount of knowledge. It is hard to help the children with something that the parents may not understand themselves.
