Uncovering Educational Inequalities

Diaz, Katia

The following exploratory study addresses the country’s digital learning efforts by reviewing the effectiveness of remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes challenges and implications that arose during the implementation process. Conducting semi-structured interviews, the analysis acquired perspectives from the classroom level to the policy-making level. This included perspectives about the country’s education system and the participants’ experiences implementing digital learning strategies. Through these interviews, the analysis identified issues such as lack of priority in teaching and infrastructural problems. As a result, low-income and rural students had little access to digital tools. The findings suggest that remote learning placed a strain on the government’s abilities to provide quality education for all students.
