Closure of school causes 'learning loss': Prasad The National Federation Party leader Biman Prasad believes long closures of school during the coronavirus pandemic can cause learning loss.

Prasad in a video posted on social media said schooling provides essential learning and when schools close, children are deprived of opportunities for growth and development.

He said the disadvantages are disproportionate for underprivileged learners who tend to have fewer educational opportunities beyond school.

He said moving learning from classrooms to homes at scale and in a hurry presents enormous challenges, both human and technical.

“The government should be focusing on is education during this pandemic, they should provide more resources in it as school closures is expected to be prolonged,” he said.

“School closures carry high social and economic costs for people across communities. Their impact however is particularly severe for the most vulnerable families. 

“When schools close, parents are often asked to facilitate the learning of children at home and can struggle to perform this task. This is especially true for parents with limited resources.

“In the absence of alternative options, working parents often leave children alone when schools close and this can lead to risky behaviours.

“There have been researches in other countries that those children who come from low-income households will be the ones affected the most.

“Online learning can help but sometimes those who need the most do not have access to it and can cause large learning loss which can have short and long term effects,” he said.

He on a video posted on social media said closures of schools during this coronavirus pandemic increase children exposure to violence and exploitation

“When schools shut down, early marriages increases, more children are recruited into sexual exploitation and grows of child labour,” he said.

“Calendared assessments, notably high-stakes examinations that determine advancement to new education levels are thrown into disarray when schools close.

“Disruptions to assessments result in stress for students and their families and can trigger disengagement,” he said.

He said the government needed to come up with better plans to ensure the closure of schools have a long-term impact on the economy.
