Education Sector after COVID-19 Pandemic

 

 

 


It is glaringly obvious that COVID-19 pandemic has come to stay just like other diseases such as malaria and so on. This means that even if the approved and globally accepted vaccine is found eventually, there would still be found some traces of the virus around the globe. With this in mind, Alice Albright and David Moinina Sengeh (2020) advocate for a radically inclusive make over for education.  They insist that because pandemic-related school closures could be long-lasting or recurrent, policymakers must radically rethink how to deliver education so that all children are learning. They rightly argued that without major steps to put the most marginalized children at the center of our education systems, the world risks losing an entire generation to illiteracy, ignorance, and dependence.

Reports from Washington, DC/Freetown, Nigeria and other countries reveal that the corona virus has shuttered schools for more than one billion children around the world. Because the vast majority have been unable to make the transition to online education, school closures have widened the pre-existing gap between how much rich children and poor children learn.

Therefore, there is need to implement Global Education Insurance Scheme (GEIS) as a sustainable tool for the eradication of out-of-school children phenomena occasioned by this monstrous world ravaged pandemic.  

 

The Global Education Insurance Scheme (GEIS) is an insurance plan designed to ensure the continuation of children, youth and adult education at the basic, post basic, tertiary and non-formal education in the event of state of emergency in the education sector as being experienced globally. Governments of various countries cannot comfortably fund education effectively due to huge debts incured before, during and after the corona virus pandemic.

 

The World Bank, UNESCO, UNICEF, Global Partners, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs), Private Sector Service Providers, Philanthropists, Insurance Companies and other stakeholders in education are to collaborate with the government of various countries to make this work. Effective and efficient framework would be designed to ensure accountability, transparency, and implementation. With this, Education sector would survive during and after COVID-19 Pandemic.
