No Vaccine To Mend The Loss Of Education, Says Manish Sisodia While Seeking Feedback On Semi-Online Classes
New Delhi: Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s Education and Deputy Chief Minister, reviewed the ‘semi-online’ mode of education implemented in the state in government schools on Saturday. He spoke to parents and teachers of students from two government schools and sought their feedback.
Stressing on the importance of education, Sisodia while interacting with them said that the loss to education due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown cannot be compensated and is irreparable. In a situation such as this, classes with the support of technology are the need of the hour, he further added. Soon there will be a vaccine to cure coronavirus, but there cannot be a vaccine for loss of education, Sisodia told the parents and teachers, as reported by the Republic World.
Teachers and parents gave their feedback on the online teaching-learning activities. The session was aimed at improving the online mode of education.
The Deputy CM also suggested for parents-teachers meeting to be held online. The interaction was held at Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya (SKV) Prashant Vihar and GBSSS/GGSSS Pitampura. Around 96% of students have enrolled in the online classes and attempt to include the remaining children is underway, as per the teachers of SKV Prashant Vihar.
The Delhi government had recently introduced the concept of semi-online classes in the current scenario of education where children up to class X are given weekly worksheets every week through WhatsApp and children whose parents do not have smartphones are invited to the school to collect printout of the worksheets. For class XII students, live online classes are conducted by teachers in 12 subjects.
Parents invited to schools today, to give feedback on online classes by Delhi govt. and to have a direct conversation with Education Minister @msisodia today.
