Abstract

In the months following the national lockdown in India, a large amount of relief and recovery programs were released that were directed towards economic reconstruction. The education sector made multiple strides as well but there have been certain gaps that have not yet taken this attempt, despite the 250 billion dollar investment plan of India's central government. The lockdown impacted the day to day operations of schools, including the closure of a community daycare facility for the urban and rural communities which further resulted in schooling and health-related impacts. It has been suggested that the effect on girls and children from already deprived racial and caste backgrounds is likely to get even more severe. Strategies at various levels are still being explored to enhance and reinforce the current social insurance systems and boost their impacts. Despite the various efforts and initiatives introduced by the government, there is a failure in the public education system during such crisis scenarios. Will the collective efforts of the government, NGOs, and civil society organizations help in introducing digital initiatives to meet the initial challenges and help in making learning more engaging and interesting. Also, keeping in mind this current pandemic wherein most of the private schools took their classes online, it is important that such measures are taken for the rural and underprivileged children who might not be able to afford the requisite tools and gadgets for e-learning. It is important for the government to ensure that they are not despised for their basic education and there is always an alternative during major crises.
