Using wave 2 data from the Nids-Cram survey, collected in June and July, as well as monitoring data from the department of basic education, we answer five questions:
- What were attendance rates like?
- How worried were parents about the return of learners to school?
- Did reopening lead to an unacceptable spread of infections?
- What were the costs to children of the school closures? and
- What now?
