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

  • Another suggestion is to recruit an army of tutors, consisting of recently unemployed professionals, to educate the children.

“The Arrow”

Guilt is often counterproductive. It makes us feel paralyzed. However, when we are in this state, we are not helping anyone.

One Buddhist teaching could be helpful as one wrestles with this problem. It's found in a discourse called the Sallatha Sutta, known as "The Arrow." When someone has a painful experience, like a physical illness or witnessing suffering, it's as if the world has shot an arrow into the person. The pain is normal. When one tries to make up a story around the pain, you shoot a second arrow into yourself.
