- 62% of the parents in the country still do not want to send their children to school due to fear of coronavirus
- Experts’ suggestion- Children and parents have to pay attention whether the content being taught is credible or not
Coronavirus has the worst effect on children. According to UNESCO, it is difficult for more than 10 million girls in the world to return to school. According to data from the Ministry of Education, more than 24 crore children in India attend school. But, all these are not going to school since March.
According to the Local Circle Survey, 62% of the parents in the country still do not want to send their children to school for fear of Corona. In such a situation, children are forced to study online for a long time. Gradually they are getting used to it. However, parents’ difficulties have increased due to children not going to school.
Dr. Dhananjay Chopra, Head and Professor, Center of Media Studies at Allahabad University, says that I myself have been taking children’s online classes for a long time. After Corona, studying online is nothing short of a miracle for teachers and children. Because, before that we did not take the importance of this video technology so seriously.

Parents and children need to pay attention to content credibility

Cannot research and experiment in e-learning
According to Dr. Chopra, the campuses of schools and colleges are necessary for research and experimentation. We cannot research and experiment in e-learning.
