Closing the Learning Gap: How frontline educators want to address lost learning due to COVID-19

From the report: "The pandemic’s effects on student learning have been profound. More than half of all educators surveyed by Horace Mann in February and March 2021 reported significant loss of academic learning and disruption to social-emotional learning when comparing their current students to those in previous years. When you add in educators who see some loss or disruption, the impact rises to an astonishing 97% and 96%, respectively. Educators’ biggest concern about students is their mental health, closely followed by loss of learning. A widening gap between academically struggling and high-performing students is by far the top challenge in returning to “normal,” according to nearly half of respondents."
