GUYANA: Education and the COVID-19 Pandemic – Stabroek News Editorial

Stabroek News

By EDITORIAL –       

One of the consequences of Covid is the widening of the gap between the affluent and the poor, a problem which applies to developed countries as much as developing ones. But nowhere is inequality between the groups more evident than in the area of education.  Children from better-off families as well as those whose parents are professionals or semi-professionals will emerge from the pandemic less disadvantaged than those of their peers who do not have this kind of family background.

President Joe Biden will mark the occasion by hosting thousands of key workers and military folk on the South Lawn of the White House in what is being billed as “independence from the virus”. 

Even so, for a lot of people this July 4th weekend may be much like any other. Our latest weekly poll from YouGov asked Americans whether they plan to celebrate more or less than usual this year. Fully 73% said they will be celebrating about the same as usual; only 8% said more than normal. Around 20% said they would do less than usual. That tallies broadly with our new “normalcy index”, which we launched in this week’s Graphic Detail section.
