Tell us about your idea

All schools In India were temporarily closed for prevention and control the spread of the COVID-19 .The children of our  village communities are socially and economically very poor .  Due poor economic contention, the parents admitted their children in govt public schools.Many one teacher schools in our state.So,No quality education . No opportunities for play and games and extra curricular activities in the public  schools.Now, the children are in their homes,No chance to continue their education.Many children do not have computer and internet facilities in their home  Due to lack of these opportunities directly created larger negative effect on continuous learning of the  poor children  The children in our state are not receiving school meals as a result of school closures.The social isolation from friends and teachers, the student  affected by lowliness and other  psychological problems Based on  the back round  of our student and communities, I like to promote the following ideas to support children  for  their  better continuing  education  amidst covid-19

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Every village, Govt-public schools are only in the villages Tamilnadu State. Only one teacher in many schools those who teach all subjects to above 50 children.. So, no quality education for all children. No opportunities for sports and and games and extra curricular activities in the public schools No computer education and digital learning facilities in the schools Post- covid-19, we will start alternative evening education center to promote quality education, computer skill and use of internet, moral education and improve the skill on sports and games and other skill for their life by special teacher through innovative methods and tools
