REOPENINGS OF SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED BEFORE JUNE 30: MHA
As India enters in lockdown 5.0 speculations of getting things back to normal is widely increased. According to MHA guidelines, the fifth phase of lockdown is also termed as unlocking 1.0, where there will be more relaxations in most of the zones but still, there are no relaxations in containment zones. When it comes to reopening schools and colleges still there is a big full stop. In MHA guidelines it was mentioned that the decision of reopening schools and colleges will be taken in the second phase of this ongoing lockdown 5.0 that will be taken by the respective state government. Every state government is supposed to consult all the stakeholders, educational institutes, and parents as well before taking the final call. Plus the state government and the educational bodies had to take care of all the sanitization facilities and the necessary measures in the educational campuses when the decision will come in play.
Schools and colleges throughout the nation are been shut since March 16 just a few days before the first lockdown. Most of the students were stuck in their respective educational places away from home, while the government did everything to help out those students as much possible. In this crisis when there were no regular classes, online education emerged as the silver lining in the dark sky. MHRD and NCERT worked a lot to devise a better way of online education. There were various online portals where educational institutes enrolled themselves and the students. At the same time backlashes from students and parents also increased, who doesn't have access to modern technology and the strongest internet connectivity. Anyhow with almost 70% rise in e-learning, the online mode is also now considered as a great success term in this lockdown. It proved learning can't be stopped all we need is strong determination.
In this corona crisis all the competitive exams, school exams, board exams, and the university exams were been abandoned with immediate effect of the lockdown 1.0 back in March. In May most of the state boards, central boards, NTA, and UGC released their schedule for all the remaining exams which all are likely to be held in July. So, before getting on to any conclusion the government and these educational bodies had to look at how this curriculum goes on. There were also various press releases from UGC on reopening colleges in August after the respective university exams and the new admission sessions to begin in September. As these were also the time of new admissions in schools and colleges the responsibilities on various educational institutes are much more. So, as soon as the lockdown gets over or we get in the second phase of this unlock 1 there will be various strategies by the schools and universities which will count as the deciding factor of the educational future after the corona crisis in India.
