End Online Classes
End Online Classes
Why this petition matters
I’m a student of class 10th and during these hard times, when everyone is sitting at home, many Indian and schools in other countries are taking online classes through Zoom and Google Classroom. But have they thought about what troll all this is taking on a student? What if there is a death happening in their own family, and they have to put up a happy face just for those 9 AM zoom meetings? What if all this pandemic stress has lead them to depression and they aren’t being able to focus on anything?
I am here to speak up for those students who during these times are being buried in their books when they should be comforting another family member, when they should be focusing on their own and their family members’ mental health, when they should be doing things which keep them out of the depressing environment. They should be taking this time to self heal, to make things better for them. NOT sitting in front of a computer or mobile screen and taking an online class. I understand that schools are also doing this so the students keep themselves busy and not focus on the stuff happening around them. But don’t they realise that instead of actually confronting their inner demons, they are doing school work which is harming their mental and physical health.
Being a student myself, I went through so many faces of being in a pandemic. I have cried, I have seen my family members being upset, I have seen my own healthy family have quarrels on littlest things in these past few months, I have witnessed being numb. But during all this, I still had to take online classes.
Of coarse, I not saying that I want this to end as a whole, but these online classes aren’t helping anyone make themselves a better person. If this keeps on continuing, many students might start giving up or going insane.
All I’m asking for is if these online classes start teaching ways to cope up with the stress and the depressing environment, or maybe even give some activities which are not related to school work and might help the students feel a lot more better in themselves, it would be a whole lot more better.
