Shouldn’t it be an apologetic misnomer, if one tried his level best to prove self as the best in front of their superiors when the society knows the fact that 50% of the reason for the failure of government runs schools in the state are because of the irresponsible officers of the state education department and the teachers to be left aside the irresponsible attitude of the Education Ministry? Had they performed earlier equal to what they had expressed yesterday then the state education sector particularly the government-run schools would have been much better than the private schools.
The present Education Minister Th. Radheshyam talking during a mega consultative meet in connection with whether to open or remain shuts the education sectors in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic held at City Convention had stated that – the state education sector was abnormal with full of loopholes and drawbacks even during normal times. If that was a situation imagine the situation of this sector during crisis time.
During the series of the penal discussion held yesterday, that was moderated by various well-known academicians, many stakeholders mostly from teaching communities gave mind-blowing suggestions on how to impart education to students amidst COVID-19 lockdown. The needs for the opening of the school is felt by each and everyone but what is surprising if the enthusiasm of some members of the teaching community who are eager to open the school without giving proper and logical proposal of how it will be done by assuring that the students, who are the future of the nation are safe and secure from the attack by the invisible enemy.
Nothing practical was discussed during the day-long consultative meets to assure that children get education amidst this pandemic. Even the Education Minister and other top officials of the State Education Department gave no logical ideas on how to accommodate the students with proper education without affecting their careers.
Everybody knows, the WHO had directed to maintain physical distancing, and people are aware that close contact with people is a high risk of getting infected with the virus. So, why not any of the authority from the state education department suggested to replace the desk bench as single-seated table chair for students. Finding ways by ensuring the safety of the student is what is responsible for those running the sector and blah blah with theories and ideas borrowed from kitchen talk expert is not going to make sure that the future of the nation gets adequate education.
