“The most effective intervention for students who have fallen behind—intensive tutoring—has high start-up costs. While there are ways to lower some of them, severe budget cuts could put it out of reach for all but a fraction of districts. ”
One of the most difficult challenges that educators and families will look to overcome this fall will be learning loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Catching up is always tough following the summer breaks. This year, the gaps intensified by remote learning, health guidelines, and other factors will make it harder than ever for educators to effectively tackle learning loss.
