What Have We Learnt? Overview of Findings from a Survey of Ministries of Education on National Responses to COVID-19 [open pdf - 11MB]
From the Executive Summary: "As part of the coordinated global education response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 20219] pandemic, UNESCO [United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization], UNICEF [United Nations Children's Fund] and the World Bank have conducted a Survey on National Education Responses to COVID-19 School Closures. In this joint report, we analyse the results of the first two rounds of data collection administered by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). They cover government responses to school closures from pre-primary to secondary education. The first round of the survey was completed by Ministry of Education officials of 118 countries between May and June 2020, and the second round from 149 countries between July and October 2020. The survey instrument was designed to capture 'de jure' policy responses and perceptions from government officials on their effectiveness, providing a systematic understanding of deployed policies, practices, and intentions to date."
