Latin America’s children face most education setbacks from Covid, UNICEF says

RIO DE JANEIRO – Latin American children have lost four times more days of education from the coronavirus pandemic than students in the rest of the world, a UNICEF report on Monday showed, with over 137 million young people in the region still not back at school.

Latin America has been hard hit by COVID-19, with more than 11.6 million cases and over 400,000 deaths, according to a Reuters tally. The United Nations children’s agency found that the region’s children had been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

“While  schools are gradually reopening in several parts of the world,  the vast majority of  classrooms  are still  closed across the region,” it said. “ Over one-third of all countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have yet to  set  a date for school reopening.”

The report also found that COVID-19 was likely to exacerbate sky-high inequality and push more children out

UNICEF regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean, Bernt Aasen, said in the report that millions of vulnerable children in this region may not return to school.

“For those without  computers, without internet or even  without a place to study, learning from  home has become a daunting challenge,” he said.

According to the report, 97 percent of children in Latin America and the Caribbean have missed out on 174 days of learning on average and are at risk of losing an entire year of their education. This has affected about 137 million children in total. The report refers to this as a “generational catastrophe.”
