New letter from youth

A new letter from youth to world leaders is gathering signatories calling for improved inclusion in education when schools re-open

Covid-19 brought about an education crisis, fuelled by deep pre-existing inequalities, many of which will have been exacerbated with schools closed around the world. The evidence and stories in the Youth version of the 2020 GEM Report confirm the extent of inequalities and discrimination persisting in education today. It shows how to build a system where all learners can feel they belong in school, no matter their identity, background or ability.
 
Launched on International Youth Day, youth are invited to add their voice and call on world leaders to prioritize access to and strengthen inclusion in quality education when schools re-open. We will circulate this letter with your signatures to education policy makers later in the year.
