Response to the COVID-19 Outbreak - Call for Action on Teachers
Teachers are the backbone of education systems and the key to reaching learning goals, regardless of context and situation. Within the COVID-19 crisis, they are on the front line in ensuring that learning continues. As of 25 March, 63 million primary and secondary school teachers have been affected by the nationwide school closures happening in 165 countries. The International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 calls on all governments, education providers and funders – public and private – to recognise the critical roles that teachers play in the COVID-19 response and recovery.
