School closures have been implemented in most countries worldwide as a preventive measure to curb the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, causing an unprecedented disruption of education, affecting more than 90% of the school population. Ministries of Education continue their efforts to ensure continuity of learning through alternative delivery modalities, in parallel, they need to anticipate and start preparing for school reopening as soon as possible.
Key practical questions around school reopening concern the timing, conditions and processes. This webinar, the sixth in an ongoing UNESCO series, aims to:
– Enable information sharing and dialogue around preparing and planning for school reopening;
– Highlight some of the common challenges to anticipate and ways to address them;
– Share lessons learnt from past and ongoing crises which can be useful in the current context
