It is not only here but at home to that people are having trouble or are unwilling to buy the necessary technology for their kids to attend school on line.

I hear from my daughter and sister, both teachers, that the kids who had parents that were supportive and willing/able to invest in the necessary technology for their kids are doing OK. Kids with parents not able to afford or not willing to spend the time and to be supportive will do disastrously bad at the end of this. They will lose a year, at least, of schooling and most likely drop a couple grades in ability by the time mandatory in person classes resume.

Many kids will drop out and never return to class. My sister, now retired, taught at a school in an impoverished neighbourhood and she has said that even though in person classes have resumed that there are days that NO kids show up for class. Not one grade but the entire school.

A very sad situation to say the least! No matter what country it is or the level of success or failure of trying to resume educational institutions for our children...it is the children that are taking the brunt of this fallout and that will equate to all of us in the future as students fall back several grades or drop out completely...

This pandemic, even if corrected soon, will still have far reaching effects that will last for years, and maybe even for decades! Crushed economies and joblessness and HUGE losses of tax revenues will affect governments abilities to function, programs like schools and education will suffer with the children having to adjust how they move into our bleak future, medical costs will sky-rocket because so many facilities are facing serious budget issues due to this pandemic and many businesses will continue to fail because they either will not be able to make it or they will charge such ridiculously high prices that people cannot afford to use their services and thereby causing ultimate failure...

We may, (and I believe we will), get past this pandemic in the very near future but the fact remains that even after we move back into a somewhat normal existence, we will still all feel the effects of this disease for many years to come!
