Due to the corona pandemic, Swiss children are behind in learning.

According to a large-scale international study, the corona pandemic has significantly slowed down the learning progress of schoolchildren. Overall, the students missed more than a third of the learning material of a normal school year – but only around a sixth in Switzerland.

The learning deficit in mathematics is much more pronounced than in reading, wrote the authors from France, Sweden and Great Britain in the study published on Monday in the journal “Nature Human Behaviour”. They justify this by saying that parents and children read together at home rather than solve math problems.
