The presentations of the Education Ministers focused on five essential elements—the immediate actions they have taken when education was disrupted, the alternative modalities they chose to ensure that learning continued at home, the evolving roles of teachers and parents in educating learners, the efforts they put in place to reach the disadvantaged and vulnerable, and the educational policies they enacted with regard to school reopening. Best practices, lessons learned, reflections, and positive discoveries were also shared in an effort to address the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic that caused unprecedented school lock-downs.
