Join the virtual panel discussion and launch of World Bank’s new report: The COVID-19 Pandemic: Shocks to Education and Policy Responses. The report describes the long-term damage that twin shocks of school closures and economic recession could do to education outcomes, and it argues that averting that damage requires an aggressive policy response in three phases: Coping, to reduce learning loss while schools are closed; Managing Continuity, to promote learning recovery as schools reopen; and Improving and Accelerating, to use the innovative policy responses from the earlier phases to make education systems stronger and more inclusive than in the pre-COVID period.
The event will be hosted by Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank and feature opening remarks by Annette Dixon, World Bank Vice President for Human Development, and presentation of the report findings by its lead authors, Halsey Rogers and Shwetlena Sabarwal.
