The pandemic increased educational inequalities, warned ECLAC

Santiago de Chile, Nov 24 (Prensa Latina) The crisis generated by Covid-19, worsened the educational inequalities existing before the pandemic, warned today a report of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

The UN agency pointed out that this region was one of those that interrupted face-to-face classes for the longest periods of time, which meant the discontinuation of studies or remote access, during two academic years, for a generation of students .

This situation brought forth gaps in skills development, loss of educational opportunities and the risk of increased dropout rates.

It also contributed to the weakening and protection of other essential rights of children and teenagers, including their exposure to violence, ECLAC warned.

The economic commission recognized that countries made important efforts for educational continuity from home, but with weaknesses and inequalities in the conditions of infrastructure, digital equipment and skills to transform teaching methods and maintain the educational link with the entire child population.

The silent crisis in education, which affects new generations and deepens inequalities, showed that education systems were not prepared to face these changes, according to the Social Panorama of Latin America 2022 report.
