As schools reopen, our public-school education system will struggle with the children missing from classrooms - children lost due to migration, child labour, child marriages and so on. While this will remain a pressing challenge, another hidden challenge would be with those children who come back to school. These children will not only need academic support to cope with regression but also psychosocial support to help them make sense of their life during the pandemic, heal and become ready to learn again. While the education system prepares to tackle the academic regression, it is important that educators and teachers give equal importance to the social and emotional regression that has occurred during the pandemic.
