UNESCO, UNICEF, the World Food Programme and the World Bank propose this Framework to help the reopening of schools, facing the difficult situation of restarting school activities 

Global school closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic present an unprecedented risk to children’s education, protection and wellbeing. The United Nations. Secretary-General António Guterres recently called on governments and donors to prioritize education for all children, including the most marginalized, and the Global Education Coalition was established to support governments in strengthening distance learning and facilitating the reopening of schools. 

Across countries leaders are grappling with difficult and uncertain trade-offs as they consider easing lockdowns.


Taking this situation into consideration, UNESCOUNICEF, the World Food Programme and the World Bank propose this Framework for reopening schools to support the national processes of decision making and to facilitate guidance to help national and local authorities to decide the reasons and when and how to reopen the educational centres.
