The publication examines education disruptions in consequence to the ongoing pandemic and its’ impact on learning in Asia-Pacific and its subregions. It provides analyses of school closures by subregion and education level and looks at how countries are responding to get back on track to meet the national SDG 4 commitments.
This publication breaks down, for example, how many schools across the Asia-Pacific were closed and when, and what the effects were on different education levels from early childhood education through primary and secondary education. Specifically, the impact on learning loss among is discussed. It also presents country strategies which aimed at mitigating learning losses by means of remote learning, in the face of student competencies being expected to fall below minimum proficiency levels.
The UIS and UNESCO Bangkok will present the key finding of the publication and discuss on way forward. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with the presenters in an open discussion session.
