The expected learning loss in math for New Jersey’s black students in grades 3-8 during the first half of the 2020-21 school year is 50 percent, as high as students with individual education plans, according to a survey released March 30 by the Cranford-based advocacy group JerseyCAN.

Learning loss in English language arts is 43 percent for black students in those grades and 37 percent for Latinx students.
