Publication Detail
Learning Loss or Learning Disruption?
larm has been expressed about the likely impact of Covid-19 on children’s academic achievement with terms such as ‘closing the gap’, ‘learning loss’ and ‘catch up’ permeating discussions. Yet attempts to calculate the effect of school closures due to Covid-19 focus on and draw conclusions from a literature about learning loss (EEF, 2020). This research generally concentrates on the effect of summer holidays on children’s learning, particularly how it affects children from disadvantaged communities. There are many limitations to this research, including how it estimates loss, but perhaps the biggest flaw is that planned school closures for summer holidays are simply not the same as the unplanned closures for Covid-19.
