Vaccine Expected Soon; Education Off-Track: Manish Sisodia

One of the trendiest topics these days is the COVID-19 vaccine.

The pandemic will be a thing of the past when the vaccine becomes a reality, but the loss of education suffered by students cannot be compensated, as said by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday, December 3, 2020.

Mr. Sisodia, who is also Delhi’s education minister, said while efforts were being made to provide online education during the shutdown of schools, providing all the facilities to students who lack internet facilities continues to be an obstacle in the path.

Online Classes Are Not So Easy To Cope With

In matter of no time, COVID-19 has captured our lives like never before.

In these difficult times of pandemic, many students do not have the privilege to get access to technology and related resources.

“Soon, the corona vaccine will be released around the world, and this pandemic would be a matter of history. But the loss of education that our students are facing today cannot be compensated by any vaccine.”


Tablets Distributed In Government Schools

Mr. Sisodia commented that -“To minimize this loss, we are consistently working on solutions.”

He addressed the media at an event where tablets were distributed among students of Class 11 of Delhi government schools.

Ever since the closure of institutions, efforts have been made to provide online education in Delhi government schools.  However, it continues to pose a challenge to the students who lack access to the Internet or devices to study.

The Deputy Chief Minister also said that due to the slowdown of economic activities, the revenue of the Delhi government has significantly reduced.

“This is why we urged companies to help the students under their CSR initiatives. We are happy that Tata Power-DDL has given 1,059 tablets, BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) 543 and BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) 300 tablets to the schools,” he added.

However, these tablets have met the requirements of 1902 students only, many more children will need this support.
