What is the role of the Commonwealth in supporting education funding post-COVID?

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, 1.6 billion learners were out of school and school doors
were shuttered for 168 million children for an entire year. Amidst this, it is education budgets that
will feel the greatest impact.

Two-thirds of low- and lower-middle-income countries have cut their public education budgets
since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, it is now more critical than ever to advocate
for resilient and gender-transformative education financing - the Commonwealth should be a
leading platform to support education financing.

Join this webinar - held in collaboration with Council for Education in the Commonwealth, Commonwealth Consortium for Education and International Parliamentary Network for Education - to hear experts in the sector discuss these issues ahead of CHOGM 2021.
