Covid Impact on Students Health: 85 pc of children report ‘learning loss’

A cohort study by TeamLease EdTech has revealed that 85 percent of the higher education students in India believe they had a learning loss in 2020. The survey, titled "Covid 19 Learning Loss in Higher Education", showed that while students feel that the loss is between 40 percent and 60 percent, university leaders state that the loss has been 30 percent to 40 percent. 

The loss is twice the estimated learning loss in G7 countries and it may take three years to repair. Further, this learning loss has five sources; the digital divide, slow governance at government institutions, pre-existing capacity deficits, longer lockdowns than most countries, and weak online teaching/learning content, the survey revealed. "India has 35 million out of the world's 222 million university students. Covid has been catastrophic because of our many pre-existing challenges," Teamlease CEO Edtech Shantanu Rooj said in a statement. "The immediate policy response should be opening all universities for physical learning and the most impactful response is bringing forward the 15-year implementation timetable for the New Education Policy (NEP) to 5 years," he added.
