The education system has been greatly affected due to the Corona pandemic. Schools and colleges are closed for the last one year. Students are studying through online medium. But the Parliamentary Standing Committee related to the Ministry of Education has raised many questions regarding the lack of access to the medium of online education to all students. According to the report of a leading daily, the committee has summoned the education secretaries of about half a dozen states of the country including Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal on this issue.
The Standing Committee of Parliament said that facilities like smartphones and the internet for online education are available with only 30 percent of children at present. Online education is being done through this in most of the states. In this situation, about 70 percent of the remaining children are deprived of this education. For this, the committee has held the states responsible. The committee has also held an important meeting on this issue on Friday, June 2.
According to the report, at present, the committee has also called Prasar Bharati and ISRO officials in the meeting. The committee believes that the states can do better work to educate all the students in the corona pandemic. For this, the committee has also given the example of using the medium of satellite channel for teaching children in Gujarat and Odisha. The committee has suggested that all states should try to teach children on the same lines.
