Education in the time of Corona

Homeschooling and apps work when you are privileged and have multiple devices. If school was the only place where you could get a mid-day meal, the only escape from bonded labour, your only escape from crippling patriarchy and debilitating poverty, then the closure of schools hurt you in a way that no balm can heal. The longer the poor, the underprivileged and the girls are kept away from school, the less likely they are to be able to go to school again. So while you have a tough time getting your child to do their home assignments and sit through digital classes, think about how many leaps ahead your child is from the millions who have not that privilege.
