Lockdown Generation: California Students Suffered Academically During Pandemic School Year


California’s K-12 students suffered considerable academic setbacks during the 2020-21 pandemic school year, according to data from the state’s Department of Education.

Nearly half of students who took last year’s standardized test failed to meet English language arts standards set by the state. In addition, younger students performed worse than older students, indicating the impact remote learning had on those still developing their literacy skills.

About 60 percent of third and fourth graders did not meet English standards. For 11th graders, 40 percent failed to meet English standards. Over 60 percent of black and Latino students didn’t meet the criteria.

California Department of Education data shows students also suffered academically in their mathematics classes. About two-thirds of all California students failed to meet the state’s math standards.
