The New York Times published an op-ed on Nov.18 entitled, ”The Startling Evidence on Learning Loss Is In.”

Here’s the second paragraph:

“The evidence is now in, and it is startling. The school closures that took 50 million children out of classrooms at the start of the pandemic may prove to be the most damaging disruption in the history of American education. It also set student progress in math and reading back by two decades and widened the achievement gap that separates poor and wealthy children.”

For anyone who has been paying even a modest amount of attention for the past 3 1/2 years, the evidence is anything but startling.
