Session Four | Covid-19: The economic impacts of learning losses? How do we evaluate learning?

October 27, 2020

  • This event has passed.

Time: October 27th 9:30 am EDT (UTC-4)

The economic crisis following the pandemic will push policy-makers to think harder about how to invest limited resources best, and how to strike a balance between resourcing the present and securing the future. Inevitably, this will mean reconciling the needs of people by demographics, geography and social background. At the same time, the world shows huge differences in the educational outcomes achieved per dollar invested. What can we learn about making educational investment more effective? How can we mobilize the resources that are needed?

Panel 1

(10/27)

45 min The economic impacts of learning losses?

Worldwide school closures in early 2020 led to losses in learning that will not easily be made up for even if schools quickly return to their prior performance levels. These losses will have lasting economic impacts both on the affected students and on each nation unless they are effectively remediated.
