The Evidence for Gender and Education Resource (EGER) program, under the Population Council’s Girl Innovation, Research, and Learning (GIRL) Center, hosted a virtual webinar titled “Meeting the Moment: New Data on Learning Loss and What We Can Do About It” in October 2021. This document provides a recap of the webinar, in which panelists shared the significant impact of closed schools on learning levels during the COVID-19 pandemic, striking disparities when we intersect poverty, as well as the crucial need to get children back to school and for evidence-based approaches to support learning, such as aligning teaching to the level of the child.
