This white paper is being issued as part of the Save Our Future campaign in response to the current global education crisis, which is now threatening to turn into a global catastrophe. The education sector is facing three overlapping challenges: the pre-existing learning crisis; the direct impacts of the health crisis on school closures, and the effects of the financial crisis on education in the short and medium term. This white paper sets out priority actions to deliver changes in the coming 6-24 months in order to avert an education catastrophe. In light of the scale of the crisis, the paper focuses primarily on education from pre-primary to secondary and in particular on those children who are most left behind, including children who live in locations where the vast majority of children are not learning, as well as children from marginalized groups. It includes children who are out of school and those who are enrolled in school but learning very little.
