TEPSA is happy to present its new policy brief “How the pandemic impacted the (human) right to education – the Slovak case”, written by Lucia Mokrá, who is the Chairperson of the TEPSA Board and Dean of the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences at Comenius University, in Bratislava.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought learning into an unprecedent situation. Students shifted from schools to online teaching, teachers were forced to accommodate to new online teaching environments and use new digital tools. Many children and students did not have access to online teaching, which influenced the level of education, the quality of the graduates, and may have long-term effects on the economy in some states. Slovakia did not manage to adapt to the exceptional pandemic restrictions and the student population will suffer for a long time due to the limited access to education.
