Introduction

This survey by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Bank seeks to collect information on national education responses to school closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The questionnaire is designed for Ministry of Education officials at central or decentralized level in charge of school education. The questionnaire does not cover higher education or technical and vocational education and training. Analysis of results will allow for policy learning across the diversity of country settings in order to better inform local/national responses and prepare for the reopening of schools.

Given that the survey will be run monthly to ensure that the latest impact and responses are captured, we would suggest that a singular focal point within the ministry is appointed to collect and submit responses on behalf of the country (ideally, a team of two members to ensure response continuity).

In light of the current education crisis, the COVID-19 education response coordinated by UNESCO with our partners is deemed urgent. Thus, responses to the survey will be needed in a timely manner. Given the urgency, please note that we will require this first round of questionnaires to be completed and submitted either on-line or sent to COVID-19.survey@unesco.org by 7 May 2020.

If you have any questions about this survey, please send them to the same address.
