‘Catching up after school closure: the need for cognitive stimulation’, Laurie Smith, King’s College London

Catching up after school closure – Laurie Smith

This paper looks at evidence that the lockdown will further entrench educational disadvantage, including scenarios for reviving SATs, GCSES and A levels, then describes Feuerstein’s work in Israel as the most successful large-scale remediation of entrenched disadvantage and relates this to Cognitive Acceleration.
