The months ahead: What must education look like?

As the coronavirus lockdown continues, some very real questions about what education must look like in the months to come need addressing, says Dr Mary Bousted

These are extraordinary times. The Covid-19 crisis has upended all our certainties about schools and education. Students have been at home for weeks. Some have parents who can support them in their learning, with access to the internet and to online resources. Their homes will be well supplied with books and reading material. They will have enough to eat.

Other students are less fortunate. They live in homes where it is far more difficult to support continued engagement with learning, their homes are over-crowded, their parents are stressed because of the financial insecurity that lockdown has exacerbated. Some will have gone hungry.
