Pedro Freitas, from the Nova SBE Economics of Education Knowledge Center, participated in the Podcast Explicador from Rádio Observador.
He said that although we have the Learning Recovery Plan, we continue to need more information about the diagnosis of the learning situation. “We need to get a clear sense of what impact the pandemic has had on learning. I have no doubts that schools will be making this assessment together with their students, but we need a global diagnosis. For mainly two reasons: first for the families themselves, so parents understand what their children's current situation is at the moment, and second, from a public policy perspective, we need to know how to share well the resources that are included in this Learning Recovery Plan because some schools will need more resources than others.”
