While the health care sector has been on the forefront in managing the pandemic, the education sector is yet to come to terms of overcoming the disruptions in the learning opportunities of for children. The Global Education Monitor (GEM) Report 2020, released by the UNESCO points out that ‘over half of the world’s student population still affected by full or partial school closures’. It estimates that on average 100 school days have been lost by each student globally during the last academic year.
