Introduction :

The covid-19 pandemic has created the largest discruption of education systems in history affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in more than 190 countries. The crisis is Exacerbating pre-existing education disparities by reducing the opportunities for
many almost children , youth and adults

Living in poor girls ,refugees ,persons with disabilities displaced persons to continuous their leaning. Learning losses also threaten to extend beyond this generation and erase decades of progress, not in support of girls and young
women’s educational access.

Students and youth may drop out or not have access to school next year due to the pandemic’s economic impact alone.
The COVID-19 Crisis has increase the well -documented opportunity that put low income students at a disadvantage relative to their better off peers

By opportunity means the gaps in access to the conditions that enhance learning and development between low income students and their higher income peers

Covid-19 pandemic has the school and collages are shut for and indefinite period both educational institutions and students are experimenting with way to complete their prescribed syllabi in the stipulated time frame in line with the academic
calendar. Our education system was never very efficient even in the best of times the covid 19 pandemic has rendered it extremely biased and faulty.

  • The pandemic has aggravate opportunity gaps in learning :

It is in these challenging contexts of economic housing instability that students were suddenly transitioning to digital learning, race-based disparity in education opportunity.

The “digital divide” refers to the fact that some children do not have access to the devices or internet services needed to operate online The leading education summarizing the breadth of the opportunities and gaps note
The transition to educating students in their homes has exposed and exacerbated inequities in education.

  • Learning loss :

During learning loss ,in the short and long term ,is expected to be great Researchers in Canada estimate that the social economic skills gap could increase by more than 30 percent due to the pandemic

A reducing in average learning levels for all students ,a widening of the distribution of learning achievements due to highly unequal effects of the crisis on population.

  • Reducing learning opportunities :

Reducing learning impeded students learning and also affected the development of the whole students

Once the pandemic allows it ,we will need to make up for this time by increasing both the amount and quality learning time through extended schedules This school lockdown that started in the spring of 2020 reduce instructional and
learning time to imped students performances with disparate impacts on different groups of students.

  • Expanded learning time :-

During pandemic the scope of learning loss so far and the limitations of digital learning students will likely need aditional learning hours to make up the loss.
The summer of 2021 presents a promise opportunity a recent RAND analysis of 43 summer programs suggest that 75percent were effective in improving at least one in Epecially in reading.

  • During pandemic has exacerbated opportunities limitations :-

The pandemic has exacerbated the limitations of standardized tests,which reward on narrow set of skills and more affluent students who have access to spelizied instruction It such test could label students when what they nedd now are dianostic assessment and needs based assessment that assess where they are across a range of domain and what need going

  • During pandemic forced cancellations of tradtional learning :

The Current downturn is unique ,and in most ways it is much more sever than any we have experienced in resend the pandemic forced the canclelation of the traditional learning that take place in school setting

It impost substantial alternation in the inputs used to produce education that typically individual,
family, teachers school that affect outcomes like test score and graduation rates. The pandemic has
affected input at home too, as families communities juggling health and work crisis are less able to
provide support for learning at home
