70% of 10-Year-Olds Cannot Read or Write Due to Lockdowns

70 percent of children can't read or write due to lockdowns, new study finds

Following two years of lockdowns, over 70% of middle and lower-class 10-year-olds are now completely illiterate, according to a shocking new report.

“Only the richer segments of the population—those with broadband connectivity, access to devices for the use of each family member, a place to study, availability of books and learning material, and a conducive home environment, among other conditions—were able to maintain a reasonable level of education engagement,” the report states.

Armstrongeconomics.com reports: Latin America, the Caribbean, and South Asia saw the most notable declines in learning as schools there completely closed and many did not have access to online education. Sadly, many of the organizations that pushed for the lockdowns and school closures, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, would like to step in to help re-educate these children. They will try to reshape an entire generation of vulnerable children as they see fit. “Fighting this learning crisis is the challenge of our times if we do not want to lose this generation of children and youth,” the report said.

“COVID-19 has devastated learning around the world, dramatically increasing the number of children living in Learning Poverty,” said Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank. “With 7 in 10 of today’s 10-year-olds in low- and middle-income countries now unable to read a simple text, political leaders and society must swiftly move to recover this generation’s future by ensuring learning recovery strategies and investments.” They are calling this phenomenon “learning poverty,” but the issue was not based on class. This drastic decline in reading comprehension is a direct result of lockdowns and school closures.

The report tries to claim that “learning poverty” was prevalent before the lockdown, but there is no denying that allowing children to miss 273 days of school in certain areas of the world caused this problem. The report says learning poverty violates children’s right to education, but the lockdowns and tyrannical crackdown on a largely unlethal virus harmed ALL children across the globe.

So now, children risk losing $21 trillion in lifetime earnings, equivalent to 17% of global GDP. Our model has been targeting 2030 for many years as a major turning point. Unsurprisingly, this report claims that if we follow the guidance of the same agencies who forced school closures, we can attain a newly indoctrinated, I mean educated, population by 2030.


  1. Unbelievable You learn to read and write in grade 1 and 2 You don’t get to grade 3 if you can’t read or write. If they’re
    illiterate they should still be in grade 1.The education department, the spokespersons are not to be trusted or believed and never have been They are evil nazis.

  2. For vast majority of my life (I’m almost 70), America had 99/100% literacy rate. This is horrifying. Alot of brain development has been lost in these kids as well, and they will never be able to catch up and recover what they have lost re: their brain working as it should.
    This is crimes against humanity IMO.

  3. all part of the plan. destroy education for a few decades, crash it in two years, then swoop in and save the day with brand new indoctrination program.
