The global crisis linked to the COVID-19 pandemic reaches far beyond the public health sphere – the education world has also been deeply affected. Implementing an education response to crises such as COVID-19 has been and continues to be challenging in light of uncertainties. The OECD presents a toolkit to help countries continue in their efforts to design and implement education system responses during the COVID-19 crisis. The toolkit can be used by individual policy makers or teams at the local, regional or national level to shape the implementation of their education response strategies. The toolkit is freely available for download “OECD (2020), "Education responses to COVID-19: an implementation strategy toolkit", OECD Education Policy Perspectives, No. 5, OECD Publishing, Paris, https://doi.org/10.1787/81209b82-en.”
Join Andreas Schleicher, OECD Director for Education and Skills, Lloyd Hopkin, Policy Advisor, Department of Education Welsh Government, and Beatriz Pont, OECD Senior Education Policy Analyst, for an in-depth conversation on important issues to consider when shaping education responses to COVID-19.
