Reading and math proficiency have plummeted to historic lows due to the pandemic!

The state of education is in crisis, and time is running out to address the alarming decline in learning.

Dear Keystone Parents,

Startling new data from the United States has painted a grim picture of the educational setbacks caused by the Pandemic. Students are currently lagging behind previous standards by 4-5 months in mathematics and reading, and the road to recovery will take MORE than 5 years.

A study conducted by Dr. Ben Dominguez, a distinguished professor at Stanford University's Institute of Education, has shed light on the severity of the issue. In just the first year of the Pandemic, reading proficiency among students in grades 2 to 3 dropped by a staggering 30%!

The New York Times and Education Weekly have reported that students are currently grappling with an average of "seven months of academic stagnation" and have missed out on half a year or more of crucial studies. The situation demands immediate action to prevent our children from becoming part of what some have called a "lost generation."

At Keystone, we fully understand the concerns and aspirations you have for your children's education in these challenging times. We share your determination in ensuring their constant improvement towards their full potential. In the upcoming Fall semester, we are committed to enhancing the interaction between students and teachers thereby creating a learning environment that is both engaging and effective.

How will Keystone help children progress in the Fall Semester of 2023?
