Over the course of the last few months, industries around the world have been heavily disrupted as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The workforce has seen millions of people displaced and the jobs are only just starting to slowly return. With this in mind, other industries haven’t received as much attention for how they have been disrupted during 2020.
One such industry is education. Across the world, Covid-19 forced educational institutions, students, and teachers alike to adapt in ways they never had before. In fact, nearly 93 percent of people with school-aged children reported their kids engaged in some form of remote learning. This change was abrupt and nobody was truly prepared—the consequences over the last few months have been manifold.
