An Education Review Office (ERO) report has revealed that some students lost 10 weeks of learning in the lockdowns last year, says Newshub. Last year’s national lockdown (from late March till mid-May) forced schools into about 6 weeks of home-learning, while the Auckland lockdown (in August) cost local students about 3 weeks of classroom time. The report said 59% of schools were worried that last year’s lockdowns had harmed the progress of students, especially those in low-decile communities and in Auckland.
