The impact of COVID-19 on the education sector is unprecedented. Many countries have closed all or part of their educational institutions to prevent or contain the spread of the disease, affecting billions of learners. Educational disruptions, even temporary, have serious repercussions on the lives and well-being of young people and their families, especially those already left behind or left out of society and those who have fewer opportunities for growth and development outside of the formal educational setting.
