UNESCO has announced 290 million students out of school who have to stay at home, as their schools are closed due to COVID-19. Given this major health crisis, which now affects the entire planet, we think of you, dear members of the UNESCO Associated schools.
"While temporary school closures as a result of health and other crises are not new unfortunately, the global scale and speed of the current educational disruption is unparalleled and, if prolonged, could threaten the right to education." said Audrey Azoulay, the UNESCO Director-General.
In such circumstances, UNESCO Associated Schools are facing this crisis, with all schools around the world that could be deprived of education because of COVID-19 and for this reason, we would like to invite our students, teachers, school principals and parents to testify and express their feelings and concerns about the situation.
