The Impact of Covid-19 on Education, released today, Wednesday 24June, summarises published evidence on the early impacts of lockdown including on the youth labour market, disadvantage, schools, further education and higher education.
The economic impact has been felt and will continue to be felt disproportionately by young people and will be one of the defining features of a whole generation of British children. The lockdown has had a severe impact on every family and on every aspect of education in this country.
There is already a huge amount of early research and comment on this topic and Edge wanted to bring together these findings and summarise them to help build a clearer picture. This report includes data from Edge commissioned research, the Resolution Foundation, EduKit, the Association of Colleges, the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and others.
