Created: 04/11/2020 +


Worldwide school closures, alongside other secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, are projected to have far-reaching implications in the short and the long term for children, their families, and their communities. Education is a particularly challenging issue in the context of the pandemic.

On the other hand, the linkages between schools and children’s health, safety, and life prospects are significant.
