This exploratory study aims to understand how learning policies and digital learning measures implemented in Honduras during the COVID-19 pandemic impacted access to education, quality of education, and socio-economic gaps. The study involved semi-structured interviews providing a valuable window into the perspectives of individuals across different educational strata in the country. First, the report outlines demographics in Honduras and actions at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic while considering preexisting socio-educational and socio-economic conditions of the country. Next, the study explores accessibility to education opportunities during the pandemic, quality of education opportunities for students of various socio-economic status, and possible concerns for society emerging from a limited access to quality education. Findings indicate that the socio-economic gap is fueling inequalities in access and quality to education opportunities more than in the past with potential negative effects in society at large.
