The COVID-19 also known as coronavirus. It is a virus that has not been earlier identified. Like many other emerging pathogens, it came from animals to us humans and has caused this current pandemic.
The COVID-19 virus is a highly contagious respiratory pathogen and it is far more deadly than the common flu virus.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made life miserable in major aspects of society, and most importantly schools are affected by this pandemic. For example, how the closures of schools last spring impacted the overall achievements of students and how rapidly the mode of learning changed to online platforms. These academic years will continue to affect the achievement of many bright students. Without precise data on the virus which impacts student learning, no one knows whether and when to return to the in-person learning system. Even now education leaders are trying to avoid risks and shutting their schools down for the health of students and staff. Many health risks are associated with in-person learning, they are against the educational necessities of children, and children can learn more efficiently in physical classes as compared to online sessions.
Emerging signs have shown from some of the world’s richest countries that the pandemic is giving a tough time to their education system and rise to learn losses and increases in unfairness. At the very peak of the pandemic, 45 countries in the Central Asia region and Europe closed their respective schools, which almost affected about 185 million students. This pandemic ruined the education system, many teachers and administrations were unrehearsed for this alteration and they were forced to build some sort of remote education system for the students.
This was surely a tough time for students as well as teachers and respective administrations but some of them somehow coped with it and started online learning system through email, social media applications, telephones, and in some very rare cases they used the services of post offices. We all must be Thankful to the internet world for making it easy for students.
The learning losses that are caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to have pretty much a long-term negative effect on many bright children’s futures. These losses of learning can make life miserable for the future of the student.
It could translate into less access to higher education, a lower labor market, and lower earnings in the future.
To mitigate these challenges, there are three recommendations for a country:
Assessments: The shutting of schools, colleges, and universities not only disturbs the academics session of students around the world but also is the main reason for many exams that have been postponed or canceled.
