Journal on Education in Emergencies Volume 8, Number 3
JEiE Volume 8, Number 3 – our Special Issue on Education in Pandemics includes six research articles, four field notes, and three book reviews. The authors who contributed to this issue address teacher pay and working conditions during the pandemic and the rapid transition to remote learning that left many teachers feeling disoriented and overburdened. Some contributors examine the realities of accessing remote learning in digitally marginalized and low-resource settings, while others reveal where remote learning opportunities fail to address the unique needs of learners with disabilities. Several authors reflect on the pandemic’s role in bringing educational programming to scale through WhatsApp, video and social media platforms, and innovative resource libraries. Finally, this issue provide a sustained focus on learners’ own experiences of the pandemic, which as the contributing authors highlight, intersect with learners’ caretaking obligations as adolescent mothers, with their being cast as dangerous or radical because they are students in a Qur’anic school, or with other dimensions of their identities.
