World Bank held a discussion on the “Learning Losses”
- Learning losses in terms of education due to COVID:
- World Bank-UNESCO-UNICEF report: Learning losses from COVID-19 could cost this generation of students close to $17 trillion in lifetime earnings.
- Learning losses were greater for students of lower socioeconomic status in countries like Ghana, Mexico, and Pakistan.
- Larger losses among girls, as they are quickly losing the protection that schools and learning offer to their well-being and life chances.
