Educators across the U.S. are grappling with an unprecedented learning loss, often referred to as the "COVID Slide." Students faced academic setbacks during the previous school year due to the impact of COVID-19 and virtual learning, with those who were already struggling before the pandemic experiencing the most significant decline. COVID-19 has disrupted the education of an entire generation of children, leaving them ill-prepared. This alarming learning loss may lead to an increase in high school drop-out rates, potentially resulting in up to 1 million additional drop-outs. To effectively address this pandemic-induced learning loss, it is crucial for schools to assess its extent and implement evidence-based strategies to support students' growth, as emphasized by Dr. Dan Jorgensen of the Colorado Department of Education's School Improvement and Planning.
