4 Facts You Should Know About Global Education Amid COVID-19

Why Global Citizens Should Care
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the United Nations’ Global Goal 4, which calls for quality education for all. Millions of children living in poorer countries cannot afford to go to school safely or to learn remotely. Join the movement and take action here to help provide access to education for the most vulnerable. 

Global education has been seriously disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its socio-economic impacts around the world. 

The pandemic has completely changed the way learning looks and is experienced globally, and a significant number of children have been unable to learn or return to school at all as a result.
