Today we take stock of Covid-19 and education two years after the World Health Organization declared a pandemic. Although we are still living through the pandemic, this anniversary is a good opportunity for reflection. What worked? What didn’t? Will there be lasting changes in education because of Covid-19?
With me to discuss the second anniversary of the Covid-19 pandemic is David Edwards, General Secretary of Education International, a global federation of teacher trade unions representing over 30 million education personnel. He is also a FreshEd board member. He has worked with and supported teachers around the world as they navigated schools in chaos. He’s also been involved with various international organizations as they developed responses to the pandemic.
