Covid-19's Huge Impact on Global Education

By Durga Prashanna Mishra

The covid-19 outbreak had a huge impact on the education system globally. Over a billion students worldwide are unable to go to school or university, due to measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. Schools and colleges are closed. Exams are canceled and being postponed. The pandemic is expected to have a huge impact on global education. Close to a billion people are still lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak. The government is taking strict actions and making sure that nobody will roam outside. Not only doon the education system but also the economic system of the world is hugely impacted. The world economy is slowing down. 

According to the latest figures released by UNESCO, some 1.3 billion learners around the world were not able to attend school or university as of March 23, 2020.1,379,344,914 students or 80 percent of the world's learners are now being kept out of educational institutions by country-wide closures.


Another 284 million learners are being affected in some way by closures at a localized level, such as those seen in U.S. states like California and Virginia. 138 governments have now ordered country-wide closures of their schools and universities.

"We are working with countries to assure the continuity of learning for all, especially disadvantaged children and youth who tend to be the hardest hit by school closures," UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said in a statement Wednesday.

Let's have a look at how covid-19's impact on the education system globally

Due to the lockdown in different places all over the world the schools and colleges are closed until further notice. let see how the countries are dealing with it.



Italy orders closure of all schools and universities due to coronavirus. the situation is out of hand so it  will be  remain closed until known period of time.

United States

The United States Has The Most Confirmed Coronavirus Cases In The World.  The US now leads the world with over 85,500 cases. Multiple U.S. based universities have had students return home from study abroad programs in Italy after the CDC moved Italy from Alert Level 2 to Warning Level 3 on February 26."Our priority is the health and safety of our students, and we are taking extra steps to prevent and contain the disease," Seattle Public Schools said in a statement Wednesday."Schools across my state have had to cancel classes, one will remain closed for an unknown period of time," Murray said Wednesday. "I had a message sent to me in the middle of the night by my own daughter that her school district is closing down for two weeks, at least. So, this is really impacting families." the number is massive and it will have a huge effect on education as well as the economy for a long time.


Just two weeks ago, China was the only country mandating school closures. The novel coronavirus, known officially as COVID-19, emerged there in the city of Wuhan in December."School plans should be designed to minimize disruption to teaching and learning and protect students and staff from social stigma and discrimination," the CDC said. "Plans can build on everyday practices that include strategies for before, during, and after a possible outbreak."  TodayChina reports the fewest number of coronavirus cases since it started tracking the disease in January. but coronavirus already had an impact there. 


The prime minister of India has declared 21 days lockdown. During this period of time, the school, colleges will remain closed. It will have a huge impact on the economy as well as the education system. Still, it is considered as a wise step during coronavirus outbreak. All the exams are postponed, and the state board evaluation on hold. Teachers are working from home, and they are following some strict rules so that there will be no errors in evaluation. 

It will take a lot of time for all countries to build the economy and education system again. lets hope for the best. and schools and colleges shall remain closed until further notification.
