Emergency Report on School Survey Result in a Conclusion, Devastating Impact of a Covid on School Education

The school survey report results show that Covid has devastatingly impacted the school education system. The survey was collected by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), the United Nations Children\'s Fund (UNICEF), the World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The information was collected to understand the responses related to school closures amid pandemics.


The Ministry of Education officials are in charge of school education and hence the school survey is designed to collect information about the same. This information was collected to analyze it for policy learning and to take decisions and actions regarding the reopening of schools.


The survey of schools is conducted regularly. This is to ensure the latest impact of Covid on School education. Regarding the survey, the first data collection was conducted in May and it lasted till June 2020. This survey was the basis of the first wave of Covid-19. The second survey was conducted from July to October 2020 which was based on the second wave of pandemics. The last survey or the data collection began in February and lasted till April 2021 and it was based on the third wave of the pandemic.


The students were deeply affected by the partial or full closure of schools. In a high-level ministerial meeting in March 2021, it was mentioned that \"education recovery should be prioritized to avoid a generational catastrophe.\" To mitigate the impact of school closures and in addressing learning losses and adapt education systems, UNESCO is supporting many countries to get back to the steady line of education. Concerning this, the Global Education Coalition was established by UNESCO to mobilize and support learning continuity. Today it consists of 160 members who work on the central themes of Gender, Connectivity, and Teachers.
