How lockdowns present an opportunity for the education sector
A couple of months back, a campaign called “Safe Back to School” strongly urged the reopening of schools. The campaigners presented statistics on school days lost, children’s mental well-being, etc.
The minister of education was present during the launch of the campaign, and she pragmatically shared the government’s stance on opening educational institutions. In the first two months of this year, the campaigners were very active on social media and other platforms. The Ministry of Education later agreed to open educational institutions in May 2021.
