    Will you be comfortable to send your child to school when lockdown opens? The fear of contracting the disease will always be there. At the same time the child needs to study. Or would you prefer home schooling?

    In this digital world learning sitting at home cannot be ruled out.

    It is going to a tough choice. Education or safety? We will just have to wait and see how things turn out first before we make any decisions.

    If I had a child, I would definitely not be comfortable with sending my child to school at this point. I would just wait it out until Covid-19 no longer exists.

    Many I talked to are not ready to take the risk of sending their kids to school. What the future holds is anyone's guess But it is a sad situation. Home learning seems to be the choice but not all have computers in their homes.

    If no child turns up what will be plight of the school and the teachers? Teachers are without pay anyway and no school fees means no money for the schools as well. Having said that no parents would be ready as yet to send their kids to school. It is a sad situation.

    If you have access to good internet connection, then I would suggest using it to try and become the teacher for the moment. There is nothing that teachers can do, the internet cannot help you do better.

    The battle cry of the Department of Education as far as the education of our children is no vaccine, no classes.

    We parents find it practical and it is very beneficial to our children rather than to have a face-to-face learning instructions which may endanger the lives of the school children.

    What is one year gap of studies among the school goers? It's just like they're taking a vacation.

    No one knows if that will just be a one year gap or a new normal for students to do home studying. Either way it is indeed a sad situation. Schools and teachers will have no earnings.

    A friend who is connected to the education department here said that they are preparing the blended education which is a mix of online and offline classes. But the tone is to gear towards online because we never know when the virus era would end. I have to agree to that idea that the virus may stay here for years so we cannot let our children stop schooling just like that.

    It is a very hard decision for all parents and caregivers. We all want our children to be alive and safe from this pandemic. Personally, I won't be comfortable sending my child to school because I'd rather home school them and cater to all their needs and make sure they are safe. There are online teaching sites that guide and teach the syllabus well.

    Sadly not everyone has computers as that is what is being discussed here in India. My sister has a school and she too expressed concern about not all children having access to the Net.
