Patricia Morgan, executive director of JerseyCAN, said it’s important for the state to collect data from districts to address “the next pandemic that’s going to be coming for our students, which is learning loss.”
Morgan said the state needs to understand the disproportionate impact of having some students in-person, some all-remote and some hybrid. She said the only study done so far in New Jersey showed up to 174 days could have been lost in reading last year and up to 464 days in math.
“Without an understanding of how big this problem is, we will not be able to quickly mobilize as a state to get students and families back on the right track,” Morgan said.”
