Building Back Better : Education Systems for Resilience, Equity and Quality in the Age of COVID-19 (English)

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a deep and potentially long-term human development crisis with far reaching consequences. Even before COVID-19 caused unprecedented interruptions in education delivery around the world, 258 million children of primary and secondary school age were out of school globally and over half of all 10-year-old children in low and middle-income countries could not read and understand a simple age-appropriate story.
