Almost nine million school goers are at home today for more than five months. Sudden announcement of closure of schools on March 18 seems to have impacted the school goers badly. If the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) had been dynamic enough, almost all school goers would have been admitted in the upper grades by mid-April. Education would continue somehow. After all, there were no severe cases of Covid-19 till mid-May.
