COVID-19 Response: The UN Calls for Action on Education

COVID-19 Response: The UN Calls for Action on Education

“As the world faces unsustainable levels of inequality, we need education – the great equalizer – more than ever.  We must take bold steps now, to create inclusive, resilient, quality education systems fit for the future.”  -- UN Secretary General António Guterres

We are at a defining moment for the world’s children and young people. The COVID-19 pandemic has created the most severe disruption in the world’s education systems in history and is threatening a loss of learning that may stretch beyond one generation of students. In response, the United Nations has published a Policy Brief on actions needed during COVID-19 and beyond, and is launching a new campaign with education partners, “Save our Future”.
