Adopting recommendations on education made by the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) could reduce the negative impact of the pandemic on learners, a central bank analyst said in an article posted on the MNB website.
Analyst Péter Asztalos acknowledged the impact of pandemic restrictions on primary and secondary education in Hungary, "as teachers took on the role of IT professionals and parents had to become educators from one day to the next."
He said the MNB's recommendations on education could not only mitigate the negative impact of the pandemic but also support an increase in the effectiveness of the education system in the short and long term.
Asztalos noted in the article MNB recommendations to hire more teaching assistants, removing some of the burden from teachers and allowing instruction in smaller groups; to provide children from low-income families with smart devices, giving them access to digital content; and to expand the career path model for educators, further rewarding their work, as well as ensuring their continued training to familiarize them with the newest methods and good practices.
