How the pandemic and remote learning has destroyed education: Children are still performing worse at EVERY level in math and reading than they were before start of COVID

Covid US: Children STILL performing worse at math and reading than before remote learning

  • A return to in-person learning has seen standardized test scores improve across US, the test's provider has found - but kids are still behind pre-pandemic levels 
  • The results, released this week by standardized test provider Renaissance Learning Inc., analyzed reading scores for 4.4 million students in every grade
  • It found student performance during the second year of the pandemic was worse than the first, with each state seeing marked declines in 2021
  • The findings suggest remote learning has had a lasting - and negative - impact on students, especially those in younger grades
When looking at reading scores by state, all but six states saw a decrease in students hitting a state-set landmark. The poor reading marks indicate that students, especially younger ones, are still struggling, with a median student-growth percentile of 35, showing very low growth

The math exam saw students perform similarly, with 10 states slightly rising above the 50 mark - Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Vermont, and North and South Dakota

Much like percentile measurements that would track a child's height and weight, a mark of 50 would indicate a typical person.

But Renaissance's report notes that that recovery is somewhat misleading, as most grades still remain below pre-pandemic rates. 

To get fully back to pre-pandemic levels, Renaissance said, the metric would need to surpass 50 consistently.   

However, few grades, the study found, have surpassed the 50 target, with only grades 3 through 5 slightly rising above the state-set benchmark. Grade 6 was the only to reach exactly 50.

All other years, while improving slightly from 2020, saw averages of less than 50, the study found. 

When looking at reading scores by state, all but six states saw a decrease in students hitting the 50 mark - with only Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania seeing slight increases of 2 percent or less.

The math exam saw students perform similarly, with 10 states slightly rising above the 50 mark - Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Vermont, and North and South Dakota.

The poor reading marks, seen especially in students in lower grades, indicate that students who have yet to learn how to read independently are still struggling, with a median student-growth percentile of 35, showing very low growth.

I think that what is happening in one way or another affects the educational process. I also noticed that my academic performance has dropped significantly, and now I'm working to raise it. Therefore, in preparing the dissertation, I decided to use help and dissertation assistance came in handy for me. I really hope that thanks to this I'll be able to prepare properly and return to my previous academic performance.

Education is and has always been a collective effort it takes teachers and parents/guardians. Even if the parent is uneducated you can still go online to find various resources.

This applies to parents that use the public education system as a daycare anyway!

So, and what were parents suppose to do send their kids to school? Schools were close anyway. Hopefully parents learn from this, so the next pandemic they are more prepared.
