Do the benefits of school closure outweigh its costs?


Closing schools has not only devastating side effects on children and society, but also (paradoxically) unintended consequences on covid-19 mortality.

The paper, led by CNDS Fellow, Elena Raffetti and co-authored by CNDS Director, Giuliano Di Baldassarre, aims at illustrating the unintended consequences and side effects of school closure, as well as discussing the policy and research implications. The paper can be accessed on MDPI's website.
