We are facing a COVID-19 education crisis. As this report finds,
schools for more than 168 million children globally have been closed for
almost a full year. With every day that goes by, these children will
fall further behind and the most vulnerable will pay the heaviest price. The unique findings presented in this report provide an overview of
school closures from March 11, 2020 to February 2, 2021 in more than 200
countries and territories, relying primarily on the data from the
UNESCO tracker of school closures and UIS database on school enrollment. As we enter the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, no effort
should be spared to keep schools open or prioritize them in reopening
plans. Children cannot afford another year of school closures.
The European Union (EU) is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of children. It is undertaking two major pieces of work to contribute to making this commitment a reality: a strategy on the rights of the child 2021-2024 and a child guarantee to ensure every child in Europe at risk of poverty has access to essential services. To find out what children are experiencing and what they say needs to change, the EU approached five child rights organizations – Child Fund Alliance, Eurochild, Save the Children, UNICEF and World Vision – to consult with children on their lives, aspirations and concerns for the future. This report presents the findings of that consultation with over 10,000 children aged 11–17 across Europe and beyond.
