Deepam Baruri started this petition to EDUCATION MINISTRY OF INDIA and

Good morning to everyone.

This petition contains my personal opinion regarding the ceasure of regular functioning of schools due to the present pandemic situation.

Let it reach our dicition makers.

 

I'm a student of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Banipur, from West Bengal, presently in class 10.

My name is Deepam Baruri.

 

It is the present scenario where students are proceeding with their regular education through internet and electronic communication services. Protection of students from the quickly spreading corona virus is said to be the reason.

      But, most probably, everyone can observe that most of regular facilities, including banks, public transportation, some shops, which includes liquor shops also are working and being continued as usual, though with basic safety measures like mask, sanitization etc.

      In fact, I must say, many are not actually following these measures. Going to market, I surprisingly find that most of the people are without mask.

      People are attending meetings, many protests are going on, and in fact, many parties and celebrations are also being held, where, keeping sanitizers and masks is enough for getting rid of interference from police.

 

So why in this situation of compromises and relaxations, the schools and colleges are still kept away from proper functioning?

 

Can anyone assure that each and every student has a smartphone or telivision in their family? Of those who have, many are living in areas where proper internet facilities are missing. I have experienced it myself, when I was taking my online examinations, and suddenly at the last moment,I had to restart due to network issue. The examinations are serious matter for our future and more because I am a student to be appearing board exam.

 

The same student, who had been sent to his/her home, is going in Christmas or new year celebrations. I think everyone will agree that it is better for a student to be infected ( God forbid) in his/her school, the temple of wisdom and knowledge, and where he/she is supposed to be, than in a Christmas or new year celebration.

 

Keeping a student away from his/her school also interferes in their mental and social development, they are unable to interact with the society. I hope everyone will agree that social media is not better way of being socialised than actually being in the society.

I had myself developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) from this prolonged solitude, which , though, have been cured by medication.

 

I hope that everyone will agree that the above mentioned problems are actually occuring in the present situation, and all of them are matters of serious concerns.

 

So, can anyone explain why the only reason, protection of students from corona virus, which, I think is not successful enough, is preventing schools from reopening?

After all, the student is living in his/her locality, which is not completely devoid of corona virus contamination. They are still prone to be infected. Then why not choose the better option, i.e. , allowing them to come to school?

If not every student, at least those studying in higher grades, (for example, class 9th onwards) should must be allowed to come in their school. 

Students should not be kept suspended in an uncertain dicition. There should be an announcement reading "schools will" instead of "schools may", reopen on a given date.

At least for those studying in higher grades, which will not cause much crowding.

 

Thank you for reading. Have a good day.
