With teachers on Covid duty and no online classes, schools lose touch with students

With the entire government machinery diverted towards the battle against Covid-19, and teaching-learning at a complete stop due to early summer vacations, the Delhi education department has not been able to track the whereabouts of its students during the current series of lockdowns in the capital.

Meanwhile, summer vacation for Delhi schools was also brought forward and began on April 20. It will continue till June 9. The lockdown too was announced in Delhi on April 19 and has subsequently been extended three times.

This year, the escalation of the Covid crisis, the imposition of lockdown, and the halting of teaching-learning all went hand-in-hand and has led to schools and teachers completely breaking contact with students.

With the entire education department diverted elsewhere, education officials said they could not focus on keeping track of its students – including whether or not their families may have left the city. Director Udit Prakash Rai himself is also Special Secretary Health and Family Welfare and is part of the core team of bureaucrats working on the supply of oxygen to hospitals.
