This project follows the pandemic’s impact on public education in Buenos Aires, Argentina, particularly in barrios populares like Barrio 31, one of the city’s most infamous neighborhoods.

When schools around the world switched to virtual programming to accommodate for public health risks associated with in-person learning, Buenos Aires was no exception. Yet many students living within barrios populares in and around Buenos Aires struggled to engage with schoolwork, due to lack of access to computers or Wi-Fi, economic hardships at home, and a slew of other issues.

This project brings forth insights from students, former city officials, and local academic support volunteers and examines potential long-term effects of the lost time in the classroom. I
