“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve witnessed an unprecedented disruption of education systems globally. This challenge presents an opportunity to rethink old models and forge creative and innovative educational pathways, to ensure that children keep learning and staying engaged, particularly during periods of instability.” — Patrice Juah
