Comment:
Similarly the answer here depends to a large extent on how long we believe it will take for the pandemic to be contained. In a pessimistic scenario of a number of years, the effects on children of repeatedly missing school due to lock-downs and higher education offered in non traditional ways may harm human capital permanently. Unfortunately there is already abundant evidence that the pandemic has affected women and parents disproportionately, and the gender gaps seem particularly worrying.
