Sector performance

The education sector reacted quickly to remote schooling and other COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions, including those sector participants involved in professional training services, K12 media and technology, higher education media and technology, professional training technology, higher education, K12 and K20 services, and child care services.

Deal volume and values generally increased in the sector when compared to 2019, in part because of the pandemic spurring increased interest in the education technology segment. Alternative education models and professional training services also attracted attention.

Hogan Lovells activities

In 2020, our Education industry sector produced several thought leadership pieces and webinars on the COVID-19 pandemic related to higher education employment, return to the workplace liabilities, COVID-19 testing, class actions against universities, and CARES Act grants.

We also produced a podcast on regulatory perspectives on international online education, which covered temporary versus full online degree programs, U.S. and non-U.S. regulatory considerations, tax implications for tuition revenue, and China’s strategies for delivering online courses.
