Covid Effect August 2022


Schedules and resuming traditional in-person learning vs continuing hybrid and online models tied to Government orders regarding the re-opening of all sectors of their countries.

As far as education is concerned, thankfully the need for boosting economies again via consumerism and tourism has paved the way for in-person learning to resume.


International Trends: Covid Effect in August 2022, Equity, Fees, Burnout and Shortages, Elementary, Middle, High, University


1. Learning Loss:

According to Unicef as of March 2022

between 2020 and today learning loss amounts to 2 trillion hours of lost in-person learning globally.

  • Greatest negative impact:

  • Rural areas of already struggling countries and mostly girls not returning/ dropping out.

  • Already Marginalized populations face a greater gap now than they did before the onset of Covid 19.


2. Equity for students

Internationally: a challenge everywhere as economies struggle and often dictate resources.

Greatest negative impact:

  • Rural areas of already struggling countries and mostly girls not returning/ dropping out.

  • Already Marginalized populations face a greater gap now than they did before the onset of Covid 19.

  • Fees

  • Many countries and schools reducing school fees, or even abolishing them all together as the learning gap has increased and economies cause a strain on the cost of living.

  • Fees remain the same contributing to challenges faced with decreasing the learning gap related to dropout rates.


3. Burnout and Shortages


It’s not just COVID-19. Low salaries, subpar working conditions and lack of resources in the classroom are three of the reasons why teachers are abandoning the profession.
