PANDEMIC COVID-19’s IMPACT ON EDUCATION

(Areej Ahmed Sheikh, )

The covid-19 pandemic has affected educational system. The government has closed educational institutions due to the global epidemic.

As of 7 June 2020, about 1.725 billion learners are now affected due to school closures in response to the pandemic.

According to UNICEF monitoring, 134 countries are now implementing nationwide closures, impacting about 98.5 percent of the world’s student population. 39 countries’ schools are currently open.

Shops, Factories and malls across Pakistan are open for business and brimming with people, but schools, colleges and universities remain deserted and show no signs of reopening soon.

High school students have been promoted to the next classes without taking regular examinations, and admissions to colleges will be granted on the basis of the earlier year’s results. While many universities and schools have started online classes.

While educational institutions are teaching online, there are some students who do not have the facilities to study online. Some are out of city, some childern do not have internet access, some areas have load shedding issues and many other reasons.

Schools, colleges and universities closer impact not only students, teachers and families but have far-reaching economic and societal consequences. The impact was more severe for disadvantage childern and their families, causing interrupted learning, compromised nutrition, childcare problems, and consequent economic cost to families who could not work.

As much as this global epidemic has ruined the educational system, we have the opportunity to see how we can improve our educational system.
