Addressing Learning Recovery: Strategies for Numeracy & Literacy
The purpose of this private video meeting for African government officials, organised in partnership with Whizz Education, was to discuss recovery strategies to mitigate against learning loss as impacted by the Covid pandemic. For policymakers and educators in Africa, both recovery from learning loss and avoiding the risk of dropping out is a critical challenge. It is not just about schools re-opening and a return to normality after the closures and disruption of the last 18 months, but students need sustained learning support to help them. Participants were encouraged to discuss the actions and policies of their governments and to make recommendations where appropriate.
