by Dr Adrian Zancajo for the British Academy

School of Education, University of Glasgow

This document synthesises the main findings of a rapid review of the literature relating to the effects on education of the COVID-19 pandemic. The objectives of this literature review are twofold. First, to analyse the dimensions and areas of research that have captured the greatest interest in the published academic literature on the impact of the pandemic on the education sector and to summarise the main findings. Second, to identify the main short- and long-term challenges for education as a consequence of the pandemic, based on the evidence available.
