The New York Times has admitted that school closures during the pandemic “may prove to be the most damaging disruption in the history of American education.” And yet the Times was an advocate for pandemic lockdowns and censorship of people who criticized them. That’s interesting, right?
This is an opinion piece but one that would have been unimaginable during the pandemic. It is an admission that the learning loss during the pandemic will effect this generation for a lifetime with “diminished lifetime earnings and become a significant drag on the economy.”
This also points to the problem of “chronic absenteeism,” which has persisted in the two “normal” years since pandemic closures. This shows students falling off what is called a “school engagement cliff, at which point they no longer care.”
An upcoming documentary called “GENERATION-COVID” points to the “biosecurity state” that has replaced Western democracy. Watch the trailer here.
