Impact of Corona on Students Attendance
In most A and B category schools, 20% of children have dropped out of school. On the other hand, due to the monthly fee of Rs. 20 in government schools, the enrollment of children has increased significantly. Parents said that schools were opened for only 71 days last year due to Corona, children are still going to school only 2 days a week, and there are no jobs due to Corona, where to pay thousands of rupees fees of private schools. On the other hand, President Serving Schools Association Mian Raza said that due to poor policies of the government, 20% of children have dropped out of school. If there will be no relaxation in government policies then this ratio may increase.
