“It Feels Like Maybe I Won’t Ever Go to School Again”

Children, Parents, and Teachers Describe the Impact of Covid School Closures

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted education for around 90 percent of the world’s school children. Students, parents, and teachers in 60 countries talked to Human Rights Watch about how school shutdowns affected children’s right to education. How does your pandemic experience compare with that of people around the world? What if you had to live like this forever?

Lost Education

Many children, especially in low and low-middle income countries, received no formal education during the early months of Covid-related school closures. Many students have seen their schooling brutally interrupted – and for millions shuttered schools will mean the abrupt end to their education.

Mental Health

School shutdowns had negative psychosocial consequences for many children, in part caused by the interruption of the daily school routine and the support of seeing friends. Many teenagers told us they were bored during school closures; others opened up about more negative feelings.

Low-Income Households

Children living in poverty have greater difficulty learning during the pandemic for many reasons: they have less access to devices or affordable internet needed for online learning, they’re more likely to live in spaces that make studying at home difficult, and their parents are less equipped to act as substitute teachers.

Work and Family

We know that children who are not in school are more likely to start working; and children in poorer families are more likely to drop out of school to work. Kids are increasingly working in response to school closures or engaging in child labor (working before the legal age or in a manner inappropriate for their age). Many, particularly girls, can’t attend remote school because their parents make them take on household chores during difficult economic times.

Electricity, Radio, TV

Many distance-learning solutions rely on electricity to power radios, televisions, telephones, or the internet. In places where infrastructure has been destroyed, damaged, or never built, the lack of reliable power prevents much remote learning, except for those wealthy enough to afford private generators. Even where governments use lower-tech solutions such as radio and television to deliver learning, some children are excluded because their families cannot afford sets or live in places too remote for a signal.

Inadequate Devices or Internet

The speed and quality of internet is as important as affordable access to bridging digital divides. Poor connectivity and unreliable internet services significantly impacted the ability of some kids to learn online. And students living in the least connected places contend with the slowest internet at the least affordable prices. Fifty percent of students worldwide – 826 million learners – do not have access to a computer at home.

No Devices or Internet

After schools closed, hundreds of millions of students experienced a dramatic shift to distance learning, with classrooms replaced by cellphones, tablets, and computers. The children least likely to have devices or internet access – those from the poorest families, from marginalized communities, living in rural areas, living with disabilities, and many girls – were more likely to be shut out of remote learning, widening the deep educational inequalities they already face.

Digital Literacy

Using the internet requires digital literacy: the skills to access and engage with the online environment critically, confidently, and safely. The abrupt, mass shift to online learning exposed wide gaps in digital literacy among students, parents, and teachers. Those unfamiliar with using technology, or creating digital content, found the transition challenging. Other children struggled with the risks of spending extended, unstructured time online.

Children with Disabilities

School closures all too frequently resulted in alternatives that were not accessible for children with disabilities, risking their exclusion from education.

Escaping Conflict

Armed conflict is a major factor driving many children out of school. School drop-outs have been compounded by the pandemic-related school closures. Refugee, asylum-seeking, displaced, and migrant children often face unequal access to education due to factors including discriminatory barriers, economic inequality, social isolation, and language differences. These were often exacerbated during school lockdowns. Half of all school-age refugees were shut out of schooling even before the pandemic.

I tried to get in touch with my teacher who was teaching mathematics, chemistry, and physics. He said he would not be able to go to anyone’s home, but they could come to his house. As girls we feared going to his house, but I hear the boys have been going.

I was not contacted by the school and I received no information about assignments to be completed by my sons… I cannot read or write, and I am very poor. I have always wanted a better life for my children… All I want is that my sons return to school… They deserve an education like all other kids.
Mother, Cambodia
I have around five students that I haven’t heard anything from and who have not submitted anything, they went off the grid.

It does not make me happy that my children are no longer going to school… Years don’t wait for them. They have already lost a lot… What will become of our uneducated children?

I have students who have not appeared in these four months because they have no cellphone.

We just missed a whole bunch of material. The classes on Zoom really didn’t work… They were about 30 minutes long instead of 1.5 hours... Only three of my subjects offered Zoom classes.

It’s certain that students will drop out of school. One of my students is already selling fish. She gave me two for free. She told me clearly that she cannot resume her studies next academic year.
Teacher, Central African Republic
I was completely struggling for a whole two weeks, like crying every day. That was a big thing for me, starting to think life was meaningless.
Joseph, 16, South Africa
Social life has always provided an escape from my worries and troubles, so it was scary to be just stuck with my own thoughts… At school, you’re with people that encourage a shared mindset of studying.

It’s a little lonely… I’ve seen some of my classmates outside of school but this year I don’t have any of their [phone] numbers so it’s hard. I only follow two of my classmates on Instagram.
Josefina, 15, US
The lockdown has been isolating with no friends and school structure. The group discussions that helped me learn and being able to go to the labs and conduct different experiments are other things I miss.
Kioko, 15, Kenya
I am feeling a lot of stress… I have not been going to school for a long time now, so it feels like maybe I won’t ever go to school again.
Palki, 14, Bangladesh
I’ve been very depressed. My mood was just not good, I was feeling overall just restless. I feel like a kid that’s getting cranky and has too much energy. I feel trapped.

The closure disproportionately affects students whose families are essential workers or are working multiple jobs, or don’t have a lot of books at home. I was mailing some students paper and pencils.

It is not easy to study in these conditions because we do not have enough space at home to do so and she is often disturbed by her brothers and family members.
Father, Democratic Republic of Congo
Their teacher called me to tell me to buy a big phone [smartphone] for online teaching... I don’t have money to feed my family and I am struggling to make ends meet, how can I afford a phone and internet?
Mother, Nigeria
There was no money at home and my mother was struggling so much…It is hard being hungry a whole day. Many times, my mum has to borrow food at the shop, but sometimes those people at the shop refuse.
George, 12, Uganda
For a while I thought that I would go back when the school reopens but I don’t think that anymore… I enjoy driving and making money so what will I do going back to school now? Even if I do go back to school, it won’t be for long. Maybe I will complete my [10th grade exams] but I’m not sure.
Rehan, 14, Nepal
I started working in order to survive by myself … My father was drinking a lot of alcohol and he would beat me whenever he returned. I got tired and ran. Then I started working because I needed many things. But I also wanted to save some money such that if schools re-opened, I would pay for myself school fees and buy other scholastic requirements like books [and] pens.

The schools did not give any type of assignments or work for them to continue at home, and the government did not follow up with any learning alternatives… My siblings are home not doing much. They help out by hawking fish which my father brings home from fishing after my mother has smoked them.

I started work to support my mum and earn enough money to pay for my senior high school education when the time comes.

His mom would leave at 5 in the morning, and he had to take care of his 3-year-old brother. It was clear that he didn’t have time to do [the assignments I sent].

I’m in grade 12 and I’m about to try to have admission into university but I’ve fallen behind… Sometimes I couldn’t attend the online classes because my family owns small local shops and I had to help them. I only went to online classes for a week, then I had to help in the shop the rest of the time… I’m not sure if they would have asked me to work in the shop if I physically needed to be in school.

Mother, camp for internally displaced people, Iraq
The government did something resembling courses on national television. But since some neighborhoods experience electricity shortages all seven days of the week, it's complicated. These courses only work for those who have access to electricity.
Father, Cameroon
Sometimes the internet is very slow... I have a hard time downloading or streaming videos. There is a better plan for faster Wi-Fi. I discussed it with my mom, but she said we can’t afford it. Since the connection is not great, I have to prioritize some lessons over others… I missed some economy, philosophy, and English classes, because I had to make choices.
Hind, 18, Morocco
I have the maximum plan for internet here, with 100 gigabytes of data [equal to about 200 hours of online video], and it is US$315 per month. I can start loading a web page and go sweep my floors while I wait for the page to load... I don’t believe that going to online learning could ever be an option unless the internet infrastructure is better.

We had online classes through the phone… There were a lot of internet connectivity problems. I would miss what the teacher was saying, it was hard to understand the information that the teacher was trying to share. There was a direct impact on my grades―I didn’t do as well. We all find it hard to focus.

We have one computer in the family. Both my wife and I are working from home, so we need it. Now both children have classes, so they need to be on the computer. Two children with classes at the same time, so actually we need two computers. We are taking salary cuts, how can we afford to buy another laptop? So, one child is missing class.

I am a lower middle-class person and want to give my children the best education that I can afford, however I can’t afford multiple devices… My youngest daughter had to do classes on my wife’s phone and lost all interest in online classes… This is not fair. Anyone who can afford faster internet connections and multiple devices will have a significant advantage over my children.

Over 50 percent [of my students] don’t have internet. How are they supposed to work?… They went to the library and sat in the parking lot and did their work there… They have to make sure everybody has access to internet… Especially the kids in the rural areas. Those are the kids that get left behind because they just don’t have it.

Mariam, 17, Kyrgyzstan
For students who are brand new to the country or had interrupted schooling, one big issue is that they weren’t proficient in using the technology before the pandemic… A student…was telling me that the video his teacher sent didn’t have any sound. I asked him if he turned up the volume and he said ‘Yes,’ but what he was actually doing was just pushing ‘mute’ and ‘unmute’ on the video over and over... Just getting a computer―that’s step one in equity. Having access to the content is the way bigger issue.

Teacher, US
When I sent them the first assignments, I was expecting them to send me back Word documents, files.

They couldn’t rely on a good digital expertise, as nobody had provided them with that resource.
Science teacher, Italy
We thought it would be easy for students, but it wasn’t. They have cell phones, but had difficulties accessing Google Classroom. I had to give personalized assistance to students.

He is an auditory learner, and his school is not doing Zoom sessions… They send the work and then it’s up to the child to do the work. That’s very, very hard because…sitting down and focusing is very difficult for him… He has to have a snack. And then he has to do this.

A student of mine… he has great difficulty in concentrating even in person, so we used to do some small modules in person for a quarter of an hour and then we go for a walk. This mode of doing things became impossible… We are afraid that he may not come back.
Teacher, Italy
Most of our students [with disabilities] have no access or support from their parents… It will be a great challenge to get these children ready for school again after such a long break. Their attention span is very short, and now, without having the routine and the daily interaction with the teachers as their person of contact it will be even more difficult.
Teacher, Germany
What I think he needs more than learning letters and numbers is he needs the social impact, to be surrounded by other children.

Staying at home harms his case. Going to school, in and of itself, is therapy. This is where the interaction happens, be it with teachers, with other kids, like him and unlike him. School, in and of itself, is socializing, which is what children with autism need.

He is 15 years old, he is supposed to be in 9th grade but he is in 6th grade because we were living under Islamic State territory for three years and schools were closed.

He started school again in December… He only studied for 80 days or less, and then we had this Corona pandemic crisis.

Before the pandemic, Human Rights Watch called on the Bangladesh government to urgently lift the restrictions that unlawfully deprive almost 400,000 Rohingya refugee children of their right to education.
