Education system after Corona

All educational institutions in the country were closed from March 16, 2020 due to the global epidemic of coronavirus. Then the holiday still exists at different stages in phases. No one has yet been able to say exactly how long the holiday will last. Therefore, there is a fear of a kind of session jam in the education system. It is necessary to bring some changes in the next education system to solve this session jam. First of all, the mental health of the students has been severely disrupted as a result of the students being out of school for a long time. Therefore, the first step in opening an educational institution is to look at the mental health of the students. Holidays can be extended to one day by reducing the number of additional holidays or 2/3 days per week that existed in the education system. If students suddenly finish the long syllabus that has accumulated quickly, it will create a kind of stress. So in the education system, if the syllabus is shortened only in the next year, then it can be completed in a short time. Or parts of this year's course may be added in later years. Otherwise, the next 3/4 academic year can be reduced from 12 months to 3 months, the new academic year can be done in 9 months. In the end, it is possible to make up for this loss if teachers and students work together.
