In this McKinsey & Company article, Teachers (across survey countries) reported that students were an average of two months behind at the time of the survey, with low-income and at-risk students suffering higher setbacks in every market. The degree of loss varied significantly among countries. Japan reported the lowest losses, with less than a month of learning lost.

New CDC school opening guidelines fail to ‘follow the science’
By Vladimir Kogan and Vinay Prasad
The latest school opening guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do not follow the science.The two core pillars of the guidelines - that schools should decide whether to open based on community transmission and that students should strive to be spaced 6 feet apart - aren’t supported by science. While there are many prudent recommendations in the document, these two demands will keep schools closed much longer than necessary, harming kids.
