This Guidance Note aims to provide an overview of entry points and means for monitoring the attendance and re-enrolment of students in the context of COVID-19related school closures and re-openings. It is intended for UNICEF education staff, and education policy makers, planners and practitioners.
The global COVID-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented education crisis. At the end of June 2020, schools were still closed in 116 countries according to UNESCO, interrupting the education of over 1 billion children. Prolonged school closures and secondary effects of the pandemic, most notably the negative economic impact, increase the risk of school drop-out among the most vulnerable children and threatens gains made in education access and participation over the years…………………………………………………
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
