The State Of The Education
The shutting of schools due to the pandemic has meant a sudden shift towards digital education, with many parents, teachers and students scrambling to get things in order.
There has been a shortage of digital tools (like iPads) and many don’t have internet access though, making do with public wifi.
Trouble Bouncing Back
The pandemic and lockdown are a type of disruption in school/college that can create a gap, taking a young person’s mindset off- track, and coming back on track can take years. This pandemic is traumatic for many people, and youngsters get affected by such experiences deeply, as they have an impressionable mind.
How to Decrease the Gap
The youngsters need emotional support as they may be having additional problems, like a family member who may be ill or even dead due to the virus.
Schools need to gear up to address the emotional trauma faced by the students by having trained professionals in schools, who can talk and support the young people.

When one tries to make up a story around the pain, you shoot a second arrow into yourself.
