The outbreak of coronavirus has added a radical change to the education system. School closed. Millions of students around the world are taking part in online classrooms with the help of information technology instead of going to school. Teachers are conducting classes online. The ancient system of sitting in a classroom that has been around for ages has changed. In many parts of the world, school or university education has now reached a new level on the screens of desktops, laptops and smartphones.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) says 850 million students worldwide are being denied access to education or vocational training, despite enrollment in schools and universities due to Covid-19 this week. In such a situation, an article has been published in the American science journal Nature.com on the changes and effects of the global education system due to Corona. There are socio-economic status of the education sector and details of online education.

Many students in many countries of the world do not have internet connection. There is not even a smartphone to study online. So the son of Dimas Anwar of Indonesia is raising the internet cost by selling plastic. And we also read in the media the news of climbing a tree to get internet connection. Nature's report reminded me of that again.

Academics, researchers and technologists are researching the full impact of corona on students and educational staff. They want to create and provide more educational technology platforms for organizations.

The use of alternative methods in the education sector has been around for a long time. Long before the epidemic, many universities around the world offered students the opportunity to take part in open courses or online classes. This system was developed as an alternative method of direct teaching for the students of socio-economic system. Because of Corona, that alternative system has now become a major part of the education system. However, it is very important to analyze the effects of this changed system from beginning to end.

There are inequalities and flaws in the online classes started because of Corona. It has also become a threat to change the system.

Prior to the outbreak, many developing and least developed countries around the world were well on their way to ensuring minimum primary education for all children by 2030. Among the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, the possibility of achieving this (primary education) was most strongly seen.

But the coronavirus has reversed all the equations. The risk of not achieving this goal by 2030 is high. And if the goal is not achieved, then it is the responsibility of the coroner.

In many countries of the world, schooling has already started. However, most of the countries are in the developed world. Schools are still closed in 52 countries. In this situation, UNESCO has stated this on the basis of the daily statistics of the closure of educational institutions up to secondary level.

The lowest and middle income countries in the southern hemisphere of the world are most affected by online classes. In fact, most of the students in these countries are not able to take part in the revolution that is going on in Corona's apparent solution online education. This is happening due to various reasons including internet connection problem. According to the International Telecommunication Union, 360 million students in the world do not have internet connection. For this reason, the governments of many developing countries are continuing to offer alternative classes on television and radio in addition to broadband.

Countries in the world that have more corona outbreaks or more corona damage have not been able to open schools. In many countries, there is a lack of adequate allocation to increase security in educational institutions as well as social distance. Starting school classes is therefore a little difficult for developing countries. Developed countries are starting slowly. Whether in developed or underdeveloped countries, students are being deprived of educational opportunities as the poorest families are without internet connection. And this inequality will increase day by day.

Since the end of education creates opportunities for employment, income and health care in the future, countless generations will have to suffer the deprivation of education throughout their lives. There is no way out without overcoming this deprivation. Without it, even if the vaccine comes to market, it can take many years for it to reach all people in developing countries. And this idea of ​​health experts. Therefore, how to develop universal education technology in the event of an epidemic, experts have faced a new challenge.

However, this situation is not the same everywhere. A little improvement is going to be noticed at the university level. Universities in many countries around the world are able to communicate with backward students through free online classes. But the question is, because of the epidemic, the future of school level students is in jeopardy. If they don't get a chance to be educated now, how will they take higher education lessons next time?

The Corona epidemic has closed 1.5 million schools in India. This is disrupting the education of 26 crore 70 lakh children

The end of education creates opportunities for employment, income and health care at a later time, so the deprivation of education will have to be suffered by countless generations throughout life. There is no way out without overcoming this deprivation. Without it, even if the vaccine came to the market, it could take many years for it to reach all people in developing countries

The reality is that the educational institutions will be closed for many more days due to taxes. Online learning should therefore continue as a real alternative. And if laptops, smartphones and broadband connections are a direct alternative to teachers, libraries and laboratories; Then in the present system most of the students will not be able to take any advantage of it; Especially those whose families are in dire straits due to the economic downturn. All in all, at the moment there is no alternative to providing internet connection and technology materials in the state allocation for the expansion of education. Education experts are already advising international donors to increase allocations and create projects.
