I had to send my child to school today after receiving a sms from the school about an scheduled exam. There are a few schools who have decided to shut shop till end of the month. There has been a steady downplay of updates on the flu in media to keep people from panicking. This has also resulted in people doing away with the masks, especially those who should be wearing them due to cold, cough etc. The erratic climate in Pune is also worsening the situation, for the children.
Home Schooling is an option which the government and the education sector should look into, during this troubled times.
