The pandemic has posed an even greater challenge for schools, students and teachers. According to INEGI, 5.2 million students aged 3 to 29 did not enroll in the 2020-2021 school year due to economic reasons and reasons related to COVID-19., Similarly, it is estimated that the number of school dropouts in Mexico is about 3.5 million. This allows us to see that, although there has always been a learning gap and educational disparity, it is now in the context of the pandemic that the need for a growth in our country’s education ecosystem is more evident.
It is true that educational institutions face various challenges and technology has become an important ally to deal with them. Thus, virtual or hybrid learning modalities emerge, which have allowed many to continue their studies, even despite the constraints imposed by the pandemic.

His priority is to help the students get back what they have lost in these past two years.
