Students for the past months have been out of school because of the pandemic. State Governors have taken lots of initiatives at engaging students and pupils through several means possible such as TV, Radio broadcast, and online learning.

Most parents have subsequently improvised by sending their wards to mushroom tutorial centers around, that lack strict COVID regulations. With the Government’s recent reopening of schools to exit classes, several students are yet to come to terms with the realities on the ground, hence, the possibilities of mass failures looming.
