In this brief, Wills & Van der Berg review what we know about learning losses and other schooling impacts in South Africa after two years of the pandemic. Together, the evidence discussed in this brief, confirms that learning losses in South Africa have been large. Covid-19 has disrupted South African education in significant ways, with enduring impacts for the system (including altered enrolment patterns) and for children’s development. This work has been produced as part of the Covid Generation project funded by Allan and Gill Gray Philanthropy South Africa.
