Global Monitoring of School Closures caused by COVID-19 Pandemic – Dashboards

Dashboards on the Global Monitoring of School Closures Caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 crisis has significantly affected the education sector across all regions. The closing of schools has interrupted the functioning of the system, reducing student learning, and restricting the activities of education authorities, parents, and decision-makers. As the pandemic progresses, many important decisions need to be made based on a systematic understanding of deployed policies up to date.

UNESCO has monitored in a daily basis the status of the schooling system according to the closures of school and the methods selected for delivery across the world since the outbreak of the pandemic

These dashboards present the status of school closures by region and country and the status of the delivery of classes in two dashboards, one by region and the other by country.
