Since the first time schools were asked to shut down due to COVID-19, in 2020, things have not been the same for the Education Industry and the world at large. Schools have been asked to shut down severally afterwards and at some point, effects of the #EndSARS Protests led to Schools being asked to shut down once more.
As the year 2020 drew to an end, hopes were high regarding the new year in view. Parents, Students, School Owners, Teachers and other affected Stakeholders expected 2021 to behave better than its predecessor but unfortunately, plans of resumption in January 2021 came to a significantly disappointing halt as the year began with Schools being asked to shut down yet again until later dates communicated at State levels.
From the explanations provided Authorities, asking Schools to shut down at intervals should be seen as precautionary measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect children from bodily harm. Schools took a cue from these explanations and since 2020, they started using alternative means to keep their Students educated.
While some Schools easily switched to e-Learning because they already had required solutions configured and were hitherto engaging their Students at that level once in a while, other Schools were torn between rushing to configure e-Learning solutions from scratch and sitting in limbo because the Parents or Wards of their Students are clearly unable to afford the ‘luxury’ of e-Learning.
Notwithstanding their e-Learning capacities, for-profit Schools and Teachers have a common need to sustain their Cashflows, especially in these uncertain times when they’ve suffered revenue losses in differing ramifications. This need is what Fetch Consulting wants to help them meet this year through the Strategies communicated in this document.
