The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on education are severe and will only be fully understood in the years to come, says Costa Rica’s former education minister, Leonardo Garnier.
Mr. Garnier is the Special Advisor to the Transforming Education Summit, which
takes place during the opening days of the 77th session of the General Assembly.
The Special Advisor tells UN News why the Organization is putting such a focus on education, amid so many competing global issues and crises, and
how lessons can be learned from a previous education crisis, in the 1980s.
