When I heard information from the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) that the AFF tournament in 2020 was postponed and moved to 2021, I suddenly thought: If there is an epidemic next year, where will this tournament “forward”? A football tournament is still so difficult, let alone the study and exam story of the students.
This year, students have almost no summer vacation. Just finished the school year, except for high school graduates who have to study and review, those who take the 10th grade exam have to take a level transfer exam, and the rest, students of other grades can have a summer vacation and be taken by their parents. play somewhere to relax, get energy to prepare for the new school year. Then suddenly, the epidemic after 99 days of not spreading in the community suddenly broke out in the community. There are people who, because of greed for money, have buried their consciences to “pave the way for Covid to run”, bringing illegal foreigners to harm their relatives. If Da Nang suffers, how can Quang Ngai not stick. Then Saigon and Hanoi, how to know if it will be safe or not.
Summer vacations that were supposed to be for students were suddenly cut off due to the pandemic. Now just play at home, study at home, and wait. If summer vacations with travel are just a “hypothetical situation” that cannot come true, what about next school year, will the new strain of Covid 19 visit Quang Ngai again, visit Vietnam? again no, really no one is sure.
Then the Ministry of Education and Training should not wait for the new school year to be free of epidemics to arrange the curriculum and schedule, but from now on, it should set up “hypothetical situations”, for example: After the start of the school year. 2020-2921, the epidemic broke out again, how should it be handled at that time? Still for learning, but how to learn? If it is necessary to simplify and shorten the program, then from now on, there must be a plan to shorten it, so as not to be passive. Then how to learn? If you study online, how can you ensure that when you are in the mountains, this kind of learning is impossible? If you have just combined online learning with small group learning, along with teaching on TV, how to coordinate synchronously so that the teaching and learning program is not interrupted? Such hypothetical situations from now on are extremely necessary, it enables us to be proactive in teaching and learning. Don’t let the water reach your feet to jump, because “jumping” like that is easy to get bogged down!
With this complicated epidemic situation, no one dares to say that the epidemic will end next year. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare for teaching and learning in the most unfavorable situations while ensuring the training program and quality.
Now we can see how it is necessary to streamline education and resolutely cut off non-essential parts of the program. Even, it is necessary to prepare two parallel programs: a teaching and learning program under normal conditions, and a teaching and learning program under epidemic conditions.
In the past, during the war against the US, many generations of us went to school in wartime conditions, while still ensuring the course and the program. It’s not yet wartime, but the situation is also very serious due to the epidemic. Therefore, be very proactive and active.
