The Big Question has returned and this morning the question of lockdown was discussed. One of the points mentioned was the lack of education for some children causing problems throughout their lives.
Is there any reason why children could not restart their courses next September? They will have missed so much since last March and keeping up to the curriculum would be difficult I imagine. It would mean that small children would start school a year later and teenagers would go to university a year later too.
So much is made of the problems that young people are facing because of lockdown - depression, lack of contact with their friends and so on. When they do go back to school perhaps they could spend more time doing some sports and cooking and drama and other subjects that don't necessarily lead to a GCSE?
I'm sure there are logistical reasons why this would prove to be difficult. There may be retired teachers out there who would like to particpate, perhaps if there was no paperwork involved. But something should be done to make sure that children do not suffer in the long term from the school closures.
