Save Our Education: Protect every child’s right to learn in the COVID-19 response and recovery
We are facing an education emergency. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, over 1.6 billion learners were out of school. For the first time in human history, an entire global generation has had their education disrupted. And we know from previous crises that the longer children are out of school, the greater the risk that they do not return – over nine million children could miss out on education for good.
New analysis in this global report shows how COVID-19 may impact the funding of education, as well as the countries most at risk of falling behind. It also highlights the change we want to see for children and our recommendations for governments and the international community so we can keep learning alive, support every child to return to school and build back for better learning.
