Worldwide schools have been closed for months following the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic. With a rising concern over learning poverty in the post pandemic world, pressure has grown on governments to reopen schools for onsite learning. In this context, this study, conducted by LeapEd Services in collaboration with Professor Niaz Asadullah of Monash University Malaysia, provides an independent overview of Malaysia’s experience with post pandemic school reopening with a focus on potential learning loss. Four groups of stakeholders in the education sector were interviewed across Malaysia to gather independent data to document the experience before and after school reopening This allowed us to document in detail the nature of learning disruptions during "school to home" and "home to school" transitions from the perspective of students, teachers, school leaders and parents.
