NEW YORK: The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has said the world is facing an education crisis due to the COVID pandemic, which has left nearly 77 million children out of the classroom over the past 18 months .
This Thursday, the UN agency will shut down its social media channels for the next 18 hours to send a message to the world: #ReopenSchools for in-person learning as soon as possible, UN News reported.
“117 million students, representing 7.5% of the total student population, are still affected by the complete closure of schools in 18 countries. The number of countries with partially open schools has decreased from 52 to 41 during the same period. Schools have been closed for a total period of 18 months in five countries, representing 77 million students, “UNICEF said in a statement.
In all countries that have experienced long and full school closures, education was delivered through a combination of online classes, print modules, and radio and television lessons.
“For UNICEF, the right to go to school is essential for the development, safety and well-being of all children. However, in too many countries, classrooms remain closed while social gatherings continue in restaurants, classrooms and gyms.” said the UN agency. said.
He added that “this generation of children and young people cannot afford any more interruptions in their education.”
New UNESCO figures, released Thursday, show that schools are now fully open in 117 countries, with 539 million students back in class, ranging from pre-primary to secondary level.
This represents 35 percent of the total student population worldwide, compared to 16 percent who returned to school in September 2020, when schools were only open, or partially open, in 94 countries.
UNESCO and its other partners have been advocating for the safe reopening of schools, urging that full closure be used as a measure of last resort. The agency said the past two academic years have resulted in learning losses and increased dropout rates, disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable students.
