About this site

The purpose of the COVID-19 Global Education Recovery Tracker is to capture ongoing information about the global status of schools, teachers and students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This information is intended to be of use for education and public health policy stakeholders and researchers from around the world. In this second year of the pandemic, and as many countries are starting to move from emergency responses towards policies aimed for recovery, the tracker aims to support this process by focusing on data that can help build back better and more resilient education systems.

This tracker is the result of a partnership between the Johns Hopkins University eSchool+ Initiative, the World Bank, and UNICEF.
