Education at all Costs

In Georgia, the issue of general education during the pandemic has not been adequately studied from a social and economic perspective, globally as the topic is relatively new.

From  a social and economic perspective, this makes it difficult to  link access to general education, family income, and overall  student performance. As the learning process has shifted from  schools to students’ family homes, their living environment  has become an important factor, which practically determines  students’ full participation in the learning process, the quality  of education, and their outcome. Because of the complexity of  general education, learning in a school setting is not limited to  teaching skills and students’ socialization. The school environment provides a significant amount of opportunities to expand equality by providing opportunities for students from  low socioeconomic status to achieve success in education. The research illustrates that the realization of the right to general education is closely linked to institutional problems such  as social policies, economic conditions, and even housing policies.
