With most parents unwilling to send their children back to school, it is obvious that large-scale online education is here to stay even if the government does allow schools to reopen. Covid-19 has revealed that physical infrastructure is not the sole criterion of good education delivery. The need of the hour is for the government to assist socioeconomically marginalized parents who do not have the financial resources to enable their children to compete effectively in this new techno-centric instruction system. With online education gradually becoming the norm, many Indian parents are preferring the option of study from home, and that will considerably ease the burden on the already overloaded physical infrastructure of schools. Like it or not, India’s education system is changing fundamentally, and we all need to ensure that the future of over 300 million students is not compromised.
