For the northern hemisphere, the start of September signals the start of the new school year. Young and old, students, teachers and families are packing their bags and getting ready for the year of learning ahead. What can we be expecting? How are teachers planning to deal with the inequitable effects that COVID-19 has had on learning? and what should the priorities for education systems be?
