COVID catch-up: helping disadvantaged students to close the equity gap
November 24, 2021
There is good reason to send children to school. Students tend to learn less when they are not in regular class, and new data from Australian teachers show this is likely to have been the case during the COVID-19 lockdowns. In one survey of more than 5,000 teachers in NSW, only 35 per cent were confident their students were learning well in remote learning. In disadvantaged schools, only 15 per cent of teachers felt assured of student progress. This Grattan Institute report has a set of recommendations to help disadvantaged students to close the equity gap.
