Lockdowns Set Our Kids Back

New research shows that children lost an average of one-third of a year of learning during the pandemic.

Researchers analyzed 42 studies across 15 countries and found a “substantial overall learning deficit” which was higher for “children from low socio-economic backgrounds.”

This is clearly due to school closures and inconsistent access to online learning. The researchers warn that these learning gaps are “likely to affect children’s life chances through their education and labour market prospects.”
