Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality Education: COVID-19 Risk Assessment
A research-based project that would assess the impact of COVID-19 in providing Quality Education with special reference to government schools. The research would primarily be based on the assessment of the risk that COVID-19 has presented to the government schools towards disseminating quality education. The research is the focus point towards developing a Post-disaster need assessment policy with regards to Quality education. This need assessment would incorporate the elements of the current pandemic to create a policy guideline to bestow quality education (both during and after the situation of a disaster).
