How Education Fared during the First Wave of COVID-19 Lockdowns? International Evidence
November 29, 2021
9:30 – 11:00 am ET, 15:30 – 17:00 CET

A Forum Convened by the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

A number of high-quality studies on the experience of learning during the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns (March-June 2020) have now been released, addressing how school children and youth were educated during this period, but also what effect it had on their well-being and learning outcomes. This joint AERA-OECD forum will discuss Schooling during a Pandemic, an OECD report providing the first synthesis of these statistical studies, coming mainly from France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. What has been the effect of the health crisis on the time spent on learning and achievement gaps? And what do we know about how it affected different groups of students?

Please join our international forum moderated by Felice J. Levine, Executive Director of AERA, to learn more about these issues and engage in discussion through an open opportunity for Q&A.
