শিক্ষার লকডাউন (A Lockdown of education / Education in lockdown)

অনিন্দিতা ভদ্র (Anindita Bhadra)

গতবছরের আকস্মিক লকডাউনের ফলে এক অপরিসীম বিপদের মুখে পড়তে হয় শিক্ষক, ছাত্রছাত্রী ও আমাদের সামগ্রিক শিক্ষা ব্যবস্থাকে। এই সময়ে বিভিন্ন স্কুল ও কলেজের প্রশাসনিক বিভাগের নির্দেশে শুরু করা হয় অনলাইনে ক্লাসের প্রথা-পক্রিয়া। এই হঠাৎ সিদ্ধান্তের ফলে একাধারে যেমন নাস্তানাবুদ হতে হয় শিক্ষক শিক্ষিকাদের অনলাইন শিক্ষা মাধ্যমের সাথে সঙ্গতি জোগাতে, অন্যদিকে ছাত্রছাত্রীরা উৎসাহ হারাতে থাকে পড়াশোনায়। আমাদের সমাজে শিক্ষা ব্যবস্থার এই বিপুল অবগতির নানান প্রভাব আলোচিত হয়েছে এই লেখায়।
