As the pandemic took hold around the world, schools and colleges implemented other teaching models, such as homeschooling, virtual programs, hybrid small groups, and outdoor education. All patterns have been studied to promote education. However, the lack of preparation of the students generated the parent's concern for these models.
A recent study titled "COVID-19 and Education: The Lingering Effects of Unfinished Learning" by McKinsey & Company reveals that the impact of the pandemic was severe. The data collected show on average 5 months delay in mathematics and 4 months in reading: Experts say that the virus not only widened but accelerated the magnitudes of the gaps that already existed of opportunities and achievements. The figures indicate that in mathematics black students ended the school year with 6 months unfinished and low-income students with 7 months.
A recent survey showed that 16,370 representatives or about 35% of U.S. parents were concerned about their children's mental health. Some even expressed similarities in social and emotional well-being. In addition, they revealed significant increases in various behaviors, such as social isolation, lethargy, and irrational fears.
Opportunity gaps have endured over time and education is not spared from it. That is why efforts must be doubled to implement an effective curriculum provided by effective instructors in the classroom.
