Learning Renewed: A safe way to reopen schools in the Global South

Policymakers in low-income countries face an apparently impossible dilemma: keeping schools closed will create catastrophic learning loss, while reopening may be highly dangerous and unacceptable to parents and teachers.

We argue that there is a way of dealing with this dilemma, and that the choice is not, in fact, quite so binary. There is a middle way. The flexible opening of schools offers a chance to restore and recover learning while operating schools safely, thereby minimising the chance that schools will spread the virus in local communities.
