The Pandemic and Its Effects on Primary and Secondary Education
LESSONS FROM CHILE, KENYA, THE UNITED STATES AND BEYOND
Co-sponsored by Notre Dame's Institute for Educational Initiatives, the Notre Dame Law School, and the Program on Church, State and Society at Notre Dame.
Notre Dame International invites all members of the Notre Dame community and friends of the University to the fourth event in a series of virtual events dedicated to internationalizing conversations on issues of vital importance.
This roundtable will focus on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected primary and secondary education in various parts of the world, with a special focus on Chile, Kenya, and the United States. What are the short-term and long-term consequences of the pandemic on educational outcomes? Where are children falling the most behind and what can be done about that? How are schools, including Catholic schools, affected by the disruption to their efforts to educate young people?
