Economically, education index of a country will be poor in comparison to a nation where everyone has access to education. Above all an educated person is able to give back to the society.


Amidst of Covid crisis, education has faced loss be it education institute, the students, teachers or professors every one is bothered by it. It is still a challenge for many countries to bring back the flow because the collapse that has occurred in the past two years is going to impact the future of all the children.
