REPORT: THE STATE OF SCHOOL EDUCATION: ONE YEAR INTO THE COVID PANDEMIC


What is it?

In 2020, 1.5 billion students in 188 countries/economies were locked out of their schools. Students everywhere have been faced with schools that are open one day and closed the next, causing massive disruption to their learning. With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still raging, many education systems are still struggling, and the situation is constantly evolving. The OECD – in collaboration with UNESCO, UNICEF and The World Bank – has been monitoring the situation across countries and collecting data on how each system is responding to the crisis, from school closures and remote learning, to teacher vaccination and gradual returns to in-class instruction. This report presents the preliminary findings from this survey, providing a snapshot of the situation one year into the COVID crisis.

Who is it for?

This report is for anyone looking to understand the the impact of the Covid pandemic on education.

What can it do?

The first of these data collections was conducted in March 2020 jointly with Harvard University, right after the pandemic had hit the OECD area. This latest Special Survey, which reflects the situation as of 1 February 2021, was a collaborative effort between the OECD, UNESCO, UNICEF and the World Bank, which jointly designed the survey which was then administered by the OECD for its members and partners and by UNESCO for other countries. This report presents the results from this Special Survey.
