Description
Primary education was one of the areas that was affected negatively by the COVID19 pandemic. India saw some of the harshest lockdowns and schools were the first to close and last to open leading to huge learning losses. As with most other disasters, this loss was pronounced in lower SECs and girls. The state of TN has introduced a programme called Illam Thedi Kalvi (ITK) to help recover learning losses. Sarthak Pradhan and Suman Joshi summarize findings of a new working paper titled -COVID-19 Learning Loss and Recovery: Panel Data Evidence from India- Abhijeet Singh, Mauricio Romero, and Karthik Muralidharan and discuss possible implications for policy making You can follow Suman Joshi on twitter: https://twitter.com/sujo2906 Check out Takshashila’s courses: https://school.takshashila.org.in/ You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app. You can check out our website at https://shows.ivmpodcasts.com/featured Do follow IVM Podcasts on social media.
