Reading and math skills have declined during the pandemic. You cite a study that compares the last two years against the non covid average. You seem to conclude that it was school closures that are the cause. Ut nothing you cite shows this. It merely shows covid years are worse than non covid ones. Might covid be the problem? How did schools that did not shut down do wrt the prior average? Did the pandemic not affect open schools at all? This is of some importance to your point, so any info you have would be appreciated.
