The corona pandemic, which has been rampant since March 2020, has led to massive problems in the education systems of all countries worldwide: closed schools and inadequate digital teaching have lead to large educational gaps among students. This situation has been going on for a year now. During this time, the OECD, together with UNESCO, UNICEF and the World Bank, has collected data from around the world on how different education systems are coping with the challenge and crisis management. The report linked here offers first preliminary results.

Update January 2022: Meanwhile, the OECD published a new report with the title  "The State of Global Education. 18 Months into the Pandemic" as well as other reports with different topics related to education and the COVID-19 pandemic. We link to all of them here.

The International Handbook of Inclusive Education has been published Open Access

Cover des Handbuchs Inklusion International + Zusatzinfo

The International Handbook of Inclusive Education was published in January 2021 and is accessible online and free of charge. It provides an overview of international comparative research on inclusion. In particular, the authors of the book explore the question of how a global paradigm such as that of inclusion is translated into national norms and local practices. This is done among others by building on case studies from Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. The articles are either in German or in English.

International Day of Education on 24 January

The International Day of Education is celebrated on January 24th. The day was launched by the United Nations in December 2018 - that means since merely 2 years. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the Corona pandemic in early 2020, it has become more clear than ever that education is not only an extremely important issue, but also a very fragile one. Schoolchildren around the world have been suffering from school closures as well as learning and teaching restrictions for almost a year now. For many, this means that they can no longer continue their education or they can only do so under difficult circumstances. Therefore, the third International Day of Education deserves all the more attention and appreciation.
