As the world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic, the UIS and its partners have set in place resources, surveys and resources available to all to support and create a space to discuss and exchange our various experiences.
Newly launched! School Closures and Regional Policies to Mitigate Learning Loss due to COVID-19: A Focus on the Asia-Pacific
This report breaks down the effects of school closures across the Asia-Pacific, and the effects on different levels of education from early childhood education, through to primary and secondary school. It analyses country efforts to implement remote learning, and strategies to mitigate learning losses as the proportion of students expected to fall below minimum proficiency levels is expected to rise.
See the PowerPoint presentation of the launch here.
This report provides a brief analysis on where we stand in our global education monitoring (GEM) commitments based on data collected by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) from national government websites and publications, and the Survey on National Education Responses to COVID-19 School Closures.
