Education of the children are extremely hit by the pandemic, studies and data revealed the huge number of low in literacy and numeracy skills in primary education. Modular Distance Learning (MDL) are not much effective to deliver quality and reliable learnings for those who are experiencing difficulties in reading/learning lessons to prevent failure which are difficult for teachers to provide remedial instructions because of the restriction or no face-to-face interaction within these students in the previous school years amid covid-19 pandemic.
Years of pandemic battles in educational sector are merely end but the debris remain.
